Happy & Healthy Wellness Challenge – Join now!


The Healthy & Happy Wellness Challenge for Blayney & Villages starts from 1 September – 30 November 2017. This is a program powered by Council, CentrePoint, Bernardi’s Supermarket and the Chronicle to motivate people of all ages across Blayney and surrounding villages to eat healthy, socialise and get moving to look after their body and mind. The town, team and individual challenge kicks off this Spring in a bid to turnaround a recent Australian Health Tracker report that found 75.3% of the adult population in the Blayney Shire are overweight.

This is an affordable, accessible challenge with group fitness classes, tai chi in the park, walking groups, healthy eating options, recipe cards, weekly nutritional menus and discounts through the Bernardi’s Supermarket Smart Shopper Membership card program for healthy choices. 

Everyone is encouraged to get involved, with weekly team progress for weight loss, kilometres exercised and glasses of water consumed monitored through the local paper – The Chronicle. 

An information night will be held on Monday 28 August from 5:30pm in the Blayney Shire Community Centre. First 100 registrations get a goodie bag to help you on your way! 

We believe this program could be a model for other rural communities to get Healthy, Happy and Well!!

Download a team and/or individual registration form now here or pick up a registration form from Council’s office, CentrePoint or Bernardi’s Supermarket.
