Award for New Norfolk friends

A GROUP that brings people together to share a meal in New Norfolk is the winner of a Rural Wellbeing Champion Award – an initiative developed by Anglicare to celebrate Mental Health Week (October 6-12). The awards recognise Tasmanian groups or individuals who promote health and wellbeing in rural
communities.

More than 40 people attend the “Eating with Friends” event which is held regularly at the Derwent Valley Community House in New Norfolk. “Volunteers set up tables, cook food, serve the meal and then sit and eat with the participants,” Anglicare spokesman Brett Williams said. “It encourages community connection, particularly for people who might otherwise be feeling lonely and isolated”.
