On Tuesday 19 March ‘A Night for Champions’ was held, an evening marking the launch of a wellbeing campaign. Mount View High School and the Cessnock Healthy Lifestyle Network have done an exceptional job at adopting the Five Ways to Wellbeing framework. It is all about empowering our young people and broader community to take five actions that enhance their personal wellbeing.

Council was inspired by Mount View’s plan to introduce this framework and have now integrated Five Ways to Wellbeing into our Health and Wellbeing Plan. Each of us have a role to play in promoting healthy choices and healthy lifestyles. Students from Mount View will lead the way and become local advocates for wellbeing in our community.

Congratulations to everyone involved in putting together the Kurri Kurri Nostalgia Festival. It once again attracted strong attendance and saw both visitors and locals enjoying the festivities. A highlight was viewing the costumes of those entering into the best dressed competition. Entrants had really put in an amazing effort and put together fantastic outfits. Overall a wonderful event for the Kurri Kurri community, creating a real atmosphere of celebration.

This weekend marks the Cessnock Stomp Festival 2018. It is all about tossing off your shoes, rolling up the pants and joining the fun. The festival was named the Community Event of the Year 2017 at Council’s Australia Day Awards and is a wonderful event for all of the family to enjoy.

This event celebrates everything that is fantastic about our region, showcasing our outstanding vignerons and beautiful food in the middle of the Cessnock CBD. The festival attracts in excess of 10 thousands participants from far and wide but importantly gives locals an opportunity to enjoy what is on their doorstep. It is family friendly and builds on Cessnock’s reputation as one of NSW top tourist destinations. The Cessnock Business Chamber have done an exceptional job to organise and grow this festival.  

Seniors Week 2018 kicked off yesterday with the Elders Morning Tea. There is over 40 activities and events planned up until Tuesday 17 April. Programs can be picked up at Council’s Customer Service Centre, Cessnock and Kurri Kurri Libraries and participating venues.  The program is also available online at www.cessnock.nsw.gov.au/seniorsfestival.
