Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

LO­CAL clubs and busi­nesses in­volved in sport, ex­er­cise, ac­tive re­cre­ation, health and nu­tri­tion are in­vited to nom­i­nate a free stall at Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil’s in­au­gu­ral Sport & Rec Expo.

Queens­land State of Ori­gin leg­end Shane We­bcke will be spe­cial guest speaker at the Dou­glas Shire Sport & Rec Expo, to be held at the Port Dou­glas Com­mu­nity Hall on Fe­bru­ary 4.

Mayor Ju­lia Leu said the expo will in­form the lo­cal com­mu­nity about var­i­ous sport and recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties and ser­vices avail­able in the Dou­glas Shire while pro­mot­ing health, well­be­ing and ac­tive life­styles for fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als of all ages.

“There will be in­for­ma­tion stalls, demon­stra­tions, speak­ers and come and try ses­sions in what is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote club sign-on days, up­com­ing sea­sons, mem­ber­ship and vol­un­teer­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties,” Mayor Leu said.

“It’s also a great op­por­tu­nity to net­work with other clubs and busi­nesses, and it’s free for clubs, el­i­gi­ble busi­nesses and par­tic­i­pants to at­tend.

“We’re very lucky to have so many fab­u­lous lo­cal sport­ing groups, or­gan­i­sa­tions and as­so­ci­ated busi­nesses in the Dou­glas Shire and it will be great to see them all fea­tured un­der one roof.

“It’s also ex­cel­lent to at­tract Queens­land Ori­gin great Shane We­bcke for the Expo, Shane grew up in re­gional Queens­land and he’s an in­spi­ra­tional public speaker who is very pas­sion­ate about grass­roots sport and the im­por­tance of be­ing ac­tive for both your so­cial and phys­i­cal well­be­ing, par­tic­u­larly in smaller com­mu­ni­ties.”

The North­ern Pride will also join We­bcke at the expo to meet and greet fans.

Stall nom­i­na­tion forms are avail­able from Coun­cil’s Moss­man Ad­min­is­tra­tion Build­ing, the Port Dou­glas Com­mu­nity Hub in Mow­bray St and on Coun­cil’s web­site.
