Greater Shepparton City Council will now feature an Active Arts component among the more than 400 activities scheduled for September this year through to April next year.
The 2017-18 Activities in the Park program was officially launched last week, which provides an opportunity for Greater Shepparton residents and visitors to participate in a number of free and low-cost activities, encouraging people to be outdoors and get active.
Program co-ordinator Carmen Nicholson highlighted a number of exciting activities scheduled in the new program, which included 3D Chalk Art, Sandcastle Sculpting and African Drumming.
‘‘During the school holidays there’s an activity on every day somewhere in Greater Shepparton,’’ Ms Nicholson said.
Greater Shepparton City Council’s director of community Kaye Thomson thanked everyone for their involvement in the program, particularly the local businesses, clubs and associations for their delivery of activities and support of the program.
‘‘I encourage residents and visitors to the region to look over the program and attend some of the activities that are on offer,’’ Ms Thomson said.
‘‘The activities are open for everyone, so come along and enjoy being active in the outdoors.’’
For updates on the activities, residents and visitors can download the free Get Mooving App for smart phones, get a copy of the program flyer, visit the Get Mooving Greater Shepparton website or follow Get Mooving Greater Shepparton on Facebook and Instagram.
The Active Arts Program is being provided through a partnership with VicHealth.
