Mindfulness gives kids in isolated communities the tools they need
Yoga, fitness sessions, market stalls and cooking demos on offer
MELBOURNE, 23 FEBRUARY 2018 – A family fun day at Berwick Waters will showcase the enviable lifestyle options at Frasers Property Australia’s communities, from the latest in innovative home designs to mindfulness sessions and yoga classes.
The family event on March 11 will focus on promoting healthier lifestyles and will be headlined by former Olympian and Live Life Get Active co-founder Jane Flemming. There will be food and entertainment for all ages.
A meet and greet with Paddington Bear, a Lego workshop, petting zoo and pony rides, roving musicians, face painters and a tiger jumping castle will be among the highlights for children.
For the parents, a plethora of attractions and workshops are on offer, including tours of award-winning display homes, market stalls run by Berwick Waters’ residents, cooking and home styling demonstrations and yoga and fitness sessions.
The event will be staged at the Berwick Waters display village – one of the biggest in Melbourne with more than 50 homes from 21 builders on show – from 11am-3pm.
Sarah Bloom, General Manager – Residential, Victoria, Frasers Property Australia, says the event’s theme is “All the elements of a great life”, reflecting the company’s dedication to developing healthy, sustainable communities.
“We want residents and the wider community to come along and have fun, connect with their neighbours and enjoy the entertainment and demonstrations on offer,” she says.
“But we also want to show people that when they buy a house in a Frasers Property community, and from the builders in our display village, they are accessing a holistic, healthy and balanced lifestyle.
“Frasers Property is working hard to ensure residents have everything they need for a great life. There are aspects of building a home in a new community that people may not even think of, like: What does it mean for your exercise routine? Your social group? How is it going to change your family’s health?
“We’ve considered these questions and the family fun day is all about giving people options and advice.”
She says health initiatives including mindfulness education program Smiling Mind, and Live Life Get Active fitness camps which not only help residents but also the broader community.
“Co-founder of Live Life Get Active Jane Flemming will be on hand to talk about how the free community fitness camps are helping to transform lives,” she says.
“And visitors, whether child or adult, will be able to jump onto iPads for demonstrations of Smiling Mind’s popular meditation app. There will be something for everyone. Sustainability is not just environmental, it’s about social connections and a healthy lifestyle.”
The event will be held at the Berwick Waters display village on Springbrook Drive, located off Honour Avenue, Clyde North.
