The Shire of East Pilbara has made a new year’s resolution to be a healthier and happier shire.

The Shire will team up with Healthway to promote the Act-Belong-Commit message throughout 2017 with a sponsored calendar of community sporting events that encourages the community to be active with others.

The Shire’s 2017 Calendar of Community Sporting Events offers a range of opportunities for residents to change behaviour to improve and maintain mental health.

Shire president Lynne Craigie was pleased to be forming a partnership with Healthway in the delivery of community sporting events.

“The Shire of East Pilbara believes the health and wellbeing of our community is paramount,” she said.

“The Healthway sponsorship will help us achieve our vision of safe and healthy communities with active lifestyles.”

The first event in the sponsored calendar will be a series of social pool volleyball nights at the Marble Bar Swimming Pool, which started last Saturday.
