Central Coast Council is calling on local health and wellness focussed businesses to be part of an increased program for the Live Well Festival in 2020, following the success of the inaugural event.

Council Unit Manager, Community Partnerships, Glenn Cannard, said the festival’s focus on fitness, meditation, spiritual health, healthy food and education will be expanded through a week of programming leading up to the major event day.

“Our first Live Well was a great success attracting over 3,500 people and injecting over $385,000 into the Coast’s economy, and we’re planning to make the 2020 festival bigger and better, ” Cannard said.

“We’re seeking Expressions of Interest from local business in the health and wellness sector to become Health Hubs for the festival and to help us offer a week of programming.

“As part of the festival, we’ll promote activities you have on offer at your place of business and we’re also looking for businesses to participate in the major event day on April 5, 2020, on the Gosford Waterfront and Central Coast Stadium, ” Cannard said.

The types health and wellness activities that the program and event is looking to attract include fitness classes, cooking classes, yoga demonstrations, health and well being workshops, educational seminars, and children’s specific well being classes.

Mayor Lisa Matthews said the festival was an opportunity for local businesses and organisations to be a part of promoting a healthy lifestyle on the Central Coast and encouraged businesses from all over the Coast to consider taking part. “Council is committed to continuing to create opportunities to connect the community to each other and the services they need to thrive on the Central Coast, ” Mayor Matthews said.
