Make new year’s resolutions stick
The arrival of 2019 represents a fresh opportunity for residents to tackle their New Year’s resolutions.
The City of Rockingham offers a wide range of services to help people reach their goals, and whether they be social engagement, mental health or physical fitness targets, the City has a number of facilities and programs on offer focused on boosting community wellbeing.
Residents looking to improve their fitness can become a member at the Aqua Jetty in Warnbro, which as one of the City’s premier health facilities includes a 50m heated outdoor pool, 25m heated indoor pool, indoor leisure pool with slide, hydrotherapy pool, sauna, spa and steam room and a fullyequipped health club.
Rockingham Aquatic Centre also offers a range of water sport options, while those looking to take part in group fitness classes can check out what’s on offer at Warnbro Community Recreation Centre, and a number of team sports are played at Mike Barnett Sports Complex.
The Rockingham Alzheimer’s and Dementia Walking Group gives people living with dementia, and their carers, a chance to make new friends while keeping active in a welcoming and supportive environment.
Once a month the City also facilitates the Drop in the Ocean memory cafe for people living with dementia and their carers.
All of the City’s libraries offer an abundance of resources and activities for learning while the Rockingham Volunteer Centre gives residents the chance to make a positive contribution to their community.
The City also offers an opportunity for residents to connect with other community members through its Social Connector Luncheon Program; over food and drink residents can meet and connect with each other and form lasting friendships.
Mayor Barry Sammels encouraged residents to check out the wide range of services and facilities on offer throughout the City.
“The start of a New Year often inspires people to make a number of New Year’s resolutions, and here at the City of Rockingham we are pleased to offer a range of services that can help residents improve their health and wellbeing,” he said.
“There’s no better time to start working on those resolutions than now, so whatever your age, background or goals, I encourage residents to explore the fantastic range of options available across the City.”
