The Belgrave Hub Open Day was held last Sunday, 14 April 2019. A lot of fun was had by all with food trucks, smoothie bikes, African drumming, a coffee van, face painting, health displays, and talks, fun free activities, delicious food, door prizes, children’s activities including fine motor skills and apple coring with dietitians, site tours, workshops. In addition exhibitors exhibitors at the event included Inspiro health stands, Yarra Ranges Youth, EDVOS, Women's Health East, Advanced Personnel Management, NEAMI and Belgravia Leisure.
Best of all over 500 people came along and made it a great success. Over 50 people came to sushi making classes, over 50 people participated in African drumming classes, countless children's faces were painted (kudos to parents who very patiently waited in line with their excited children), over 140 coffee's, 200 smoothies and 140 food truck meals were consumed, and over 120 people entered the lucky door prize (winners announced next week!).
Thank you to Pinnacle Health in Upwey who helped promote the event at their gym, to many, many local restaurants and store holders in Belgrave who let us put our event flyers up in their store, to Belgravia Leisure and Trees Adventure for providing door prizes and to the Belgrave market for supporting the event - which was held on the same day and at the same time.
Thank you to Yarra Ranges Council for supporting and helping to fund this fantastic event, to the many health organisations who came and to the dedicated Yarra Ranges Council and Inspiro staff who spent many hours organising, preparing for and putting the event on!
And lastly, thank you to the over 500 local residents who came along, it was great to welcome you to our building, to show you around, to feed you and to do our best to provide you with entertainment and educational information that we know will help you and your family achieve your health goals.
