Women in the Parkes Shire are invited to celebrate International Women’s Day on Sunday, 6th March at Cooke Park from 8:30am for a morning of mindfulness.
“International Women’s Day gives us the chance to raise awareness of issues around gender bias and celebrate the achievements of women at a local level,” said Parkes Shire Councillor Marg Applebee. “It is important that we come together as a community to show our support for women and help uplift them to break the bias as a collective.”
The morning will consist of a selection of social activities including a group Yogalates session, live music, pop-up stalls, gelato and free coffee.
Led by Jenz Yogalates, the yoga and pilates fusion session will leave you feeling refreshed and energised. Following the Yogalates session, participants are encouraged to stick around to grab a free coffee from Coffee Fix by Larz, enjoy the live music by Gracey Denham-Jones and support local small businesses by checking out the pop-up stalls in the Cooke Park Pavilion.
“These markets will give us the chance to recognise the creativity, innovation and talents of women in our local community by providing a space for them to network with others and create an environment where everyone is valued,” said Marg.
If you are a local pop-up stall holder who would like to get involved in this event, please contact the team at Council by emailing email@example.com or by calling 6861 2333.
The crew from female-owned local business, Packed Cones, will be hanging around in Cooke Park from 9:30am to 12pm. All activities are free to attend. Bring your own yoga mat and water bottle for the yogalates class. This event is open to the whole community in the spirit of equality and inclusivity.
