A welcoming get-together on the lake

31 May, 2019

In May the Ballarat Regional Network met on Lake Wendouree at the Lake View Hotel and welcomed a new member. It was a great informal get-together, where we reflected on the activities we’ve taken part in this year.

Members have tried out sailing and yoga, and some of us got down to Geelong for a joint meeting and fishing expedition. This was a good opportunity for sharing our different experiences.

The group thanked Charles in particular from Sailability Ballarat. Charles taught some of us to sail solo on the lake, which was wonderful.


We also discussed ways we can promote awareness of the Network, and proposed future activities. Among the suggestions:

  • Ballarat Art Gallery;
  • Melton and Daylesford day trips;
  • Council’s disability inclusion group;
  • Physio guest speaker;
  • More sailing with Sailability.

Next month, we will take up a member’s suggestion and try tenpin bowling. The member goes bowling for physio, and has had good improvements in her balance and confidence.
