Ti­tahi Bay gets healthy boost

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By KRIS DANDO

The Ti­tahi Bay community is more aware of the ser­vices and or­gan­i­sa­tions avail­able to res­i­dents af­ter an in­au­gu­ral health day last week.

The event on Septem­ber 19 was hosted by Ti­tahi Bay School. Emer­gency ser­vices held demon­stra­tions, sports and zumba ses­sions were run out­side, de­spite the chilly weather, and there were plenty of stalls in the school hall.

More than 40 dis­plays from community groups and health or­gan­i­sa­tions, many of them in­ter­ac­tive, were in­for­ma­tive and help­ful, co-or­gan­iser Kelly Brown said.

‘‘We’re re­ally happy with that way it all went, ev­ery­one was very sup­port­ive.

‘‘We’re keen to make this an an­nual event – hope­fully the word will spread and we’ll get more or­gan­i­sa­tions and more peo­ple com­ing along.’’

Ms Brown es­ti­mated more than 100 par­ents came through the school on the day.

Road safe: Sarah Cox and Georgina Muir were in charge of the stand that asked how close mo­torists should stop from a pedes­trian cross­ing. Wor­ry­ingly, a num­ber of par­tic­i­pants got it wrong.

Fierce football: The pace was fre­netic on Ti­tahi Bay School’s fields as touch and football games were run by the HEHA team. Ari MacIver (blue top) and Scott Foun­tain were very will­ing par­tic­i­pants.
