Murrindindi Children’s Network is inviting local parents and kids to join in the ‘pram strolls’ scheduled to happen around the Shire during Children’s Week, from Saturday October 19 to Sunday October 27.
Mayor Cr Sandice McAulay said the theme for Children’s Week this year is ‘children have the right to be healthy, safe and happy’.
“And research shows that exercise and feeling connected to others are important for wellbeing. We also know that when children learn about their natural environment, they learn skills that build confidence. That’s why we’re pleased to be holding a series of ‘pram stroll’ events.
“I encourage you to join in a pram stroll. There’s no need to RSVP and it’s totally free, just turn up on the day ready to play! We will be providing some yummy fruit after the stroll, but bring along any other snacks you might need, and don’t forget to dress for the weather on the day,” Cr McAulay said.
Pram strolls will run at:
• Eildon Pondage on Tuesday October 22 from 10am
• Yea Wetlands on Wednesday October 23 from 10am
• Gallipoli Park in Marysville on Thursday October 24 from 10am
• Bollygum Park in Kinglake on Friday October 25 from 10am
