Loving the Yarrawonga Mulwala Lifestyle

The inaugural Yarrawonga Mulwala Lifestyle Fair was a resounding success and plans are already afoot for next year.

The Yarrawonga foreshore was bustling with more than 55 stall holders on Sunday from community groups, sporting clubs, hobby groups and services.

Each of the groups greeted visitors, providing an insight into their workings, what they can offer, how people can get involved and, most important for some, how much fun they have.

Yarrawonga Health organiser Kaitlyn Cummins said the positive response to the event had been overwhelming.

“It was wonderful – there was a huge amount of people there over the course of the day and everyone seemed really excited and enthusiastic,” she said.

“It was incredible to see, all in one place, the variety of groups and activities we have here.

“The participation of all the groups was great and people seemed to relish the opportunity to chat and find out more about everything on offer.”

The Lifestyle Fair was held next to the Farmers Market and proved a popular way to spend Sunday morning for visitors and locals alike.

“It was interesting to see the representatives of the groups themselves talk to each other and work out what they had in common and maybe what they could do to work together or share knowledge and resources,” Kaitlyn said.

“Following the event we will have a luncheon with representatives from all the groups involved to get their feedback.

“The purpose of the event was to promote the creation of a mentally healthy community and we will work with the groups involved to see how they can integrate the idea of staying mentally healthy into their activities.”

Kaitlyn said many people involved had already started talking about a similar event for next year and she was confident the Yarrawonga Mulwala Lifestyle Fair would return in 2015.
