A new initiative called Connecting Noosa gets underway this week in a bid to bring people together after a tough year of bushfires and COVID-19.
Connecting Noosa is a suite of free community activities around the shire, giving residents the opportunity to engage, socialise and participate in a COVID-safe environment.
The first of the free activities starts on October 14.
Community Development Manager Alison Hamblin said Connecting Noosa was aptly named.
“We really are focused on connecting the Noosa community again.
“It’s been a challenging year after battling the bushfires and then navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic, so we thought it was the ideal time to roll out this initiative to bring the community together at a time when restrictions are easing,” she said.
There are a number of free planned activities taking place including yoga, heritage walks, Tai Chi and tech talks.
“The program will run through until the end of March next year and there is a full timetable in place with activities and events changing every month.
“This really is a fantastic opportunity for people to reach out to neighbours, friends, family and colleagues and get them along to these Connecting Noosa activities.
“The activities are all free but you do have to register online for the activities you’d like to do so we can control numbers and remain COVID-safe,” Ms Hamblin said.
The timetable will change on a monthly basis and can be viewed at www.noosa.qld.gov.au/connecting-noosa
