Community invited to Mr Perfect BBQ

A social BBQ will be held at Woy Woy this weekend to help raise awareness around men’s mental health and encourage conversations.

The ‘Mr Perfect BBQ’ will be held at Lions Park on Saturday, December 12 between 10:30am and 12:30pm.

BBQ host and Woy Woy local, Robert Hossary, said the two-hour event would provide a chance to meet new people, socialise and talk through anything that might be on their mind.

“Any person regardless of gender can attend the BBQs – they just have to bring themselves, a good humour and a willingness to meet new people,” Hossary said.

“We don’t offer any treatment or medical advice, but we can point you in the right direction and foster an air of communication.

“It will improve your mental health, get you out and about, some fresh air and camaraderie.

“It’s more than a BBQ – it’s a gathering of community.”

Hossary said he is hoping for an attendance of between five and 15 people and there are plans to expand the monthly event.

“We hope to alternate the BBQs between Woy Woy and Gosford to get more people involved,” he said.

“Society has taught men not to show emotions … too little emphasis has been placed on mental health, it’s not a joke.

“But if more people stopped to look at their community the planet would be a better place.

“We also hope this encourages others to form their own BBQs in future.

“There are people around you who care … you just have got to find them.”
