Portarlington Walking Group
The goal of the Portarlington Walking Group is to encourage the community on the Bellarine Peninsula to become more active with regular walking and through social inclusion, encourage friendship and support to those who participate.
The Portarlington Walking Group meets Tuesdays 9.30am at Parks Hall in the Bayview Room and walks for approx. 45 mins. The group then has a chat and cup of tea or coffee. Participants put in $1 per week and that covers hall hire and morning tea.
The group is supported by Bellarine Community Health Ltd. and is facilitated by the Community Health Nurse at the Portarlington site. The community nurse walks with the group when they are at Portarlington if possible and this enables the support of clients with health issues. When available, current health information is disseminated to the group.
Bellarine Bayside Foreshore Committee also supports the group by subsidising hall rental.
