History on display

Congratulations to Kenilworth Historical Museum, who last month celebrated their 40th anniversary. It’s a real testament to the volunteers, currently led by Lenore Meldrum, who have kept this wonderful organisation going over the decades. There’s plenty of unique and quirky collections on display including historical photographs, antique farming, industrial and household equipment. Be sure to tell all your family and friends the museum is open every Sunday until November from 10am-2pm.

Have your say on the future of parks

What do you love about your local Sunshine Coast Council park? Our parks are special to many people for many reasons. Please get involved and review council’s new Draft Recreation Parks Plan and tell us what you think. I encourage everyone to provide feedback. It’s been created to outline the strategic direction for parks across the region.

Please visit the council website Have Your Say for more.

Growing old is not a disease

I recently attended council and USC’s joint Healthy Ageing forum. It was a great opportunity to hear from many expert guest speakers. It provided me with confirmation that my whole food-plant-based vegan diet along with regular exercise is the best way to maintain my health and wellbeing. The incidence of chronic disease is currently at 85 per cent of all Australians, I plan to be in the 15 per cent without!

The good news is that lifestyle medicine can greatly assist in preventing and reducing chronic disease. Dr Sam Manger, President of the Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine and keynote speaker at the forum, recommended people eat a balanced diet, exercise for 30 minutes a day, reconnect with nature and enjoy a good social life.
