Comedian and TV/Radio personality, Dave Hughes will be the guest speaker at Brimbank’s Men’s Health Day.
The Men’s Health Day event, as part of International Men’s Health Week (12-18 June), promotes the importance of men’s health and wellbeing to local men.
This no charge event connects men in our community, supporting them to get helpful and correct information about their health from services providers.
Brimbank Men’s Health Day has DIY activities, hearing checks, and information stalls from organisations including:
There will also be information about Council services and programs and representatives from local lifestyle and hobby groups.
It's widely acknowledged there are links between good nutrition, positive social networks and physical fitness on personal wellbeing.
The Men’s Shed at Westvale Community Centre is another great example of how Council supports men’s health and wellbeing. The Men’s Shed is a meeting place for men from across Brimbank that offers activities, classes and programs – including carpentry, gardening, DIY, cooking, sustainable living, life skills to support independent living and more.
All are welcome to celebrate the positive contributions made by refugees in Brimbank at the Community Welcome Dinner.
