I would love to see more emphasis on supporting the secondary schools in our region to have more healthy options available in their canteens. There seems to be an emphasis on healthy food in primary school but this disappears once our children attend secondary school.

With the high incidence of both obesity and diabetes in the Pyrenees Shire, I would like to encourage more people to walk regularly...
The difficulty we have in Snake Valley is that the walking tracks are quite rough and unpleasant to walk on in most areas.
I also believe we need a space for the youth in the area to enjoy. A skate park seems to be a popular choice. This would enable the youth to socialise in a healthy, active outdoor environment.

We need our supermarkets and green grocery stores to be delivered 'Fresh' produce that lasts more than 2 days. Our quality of fresh fruit & vegetables needs to be vastly improved. It appears we get the dregs of the fruit and vegetables. My friends and family from metropolitan areas cannot believe the produce we have to buy. Lets grow our own locally. The costs also need to be within reach of 'everyone' so we all eat better and stay healthier.

My husband and I have lived in Snake Valley for the last 11 years. We love living here except for the lack of help for the people who would like to keep fit and healthy. I have had one knee replacement and I ankle fused and I really do need to walk to help with my condition. There is only a VERY dangerous walking track which is not maintained. Sometimes you have to walk on the road. I have put on weight and I really need to walk and that is not possible. Could anything be done about this very important problem please. The obesity problem is really getting out of hand. Some help would be welcomed. Thi...

I think a fruit forest would benefit all members of our community. If we had some land in town donated I'm sure the towns people would happily donate a fruit tree to build an orchard. I think this is very achievable as many fruit trees are low maintenance and we would be leading the way in greening and feeding our community. A great place for people to gather, share and care for each other.

It would be good to have health professionals visiting smaller villages for people who can't get into town.

To make it easier for me to be healthy and stay healthy is to have access to mental health professionals when urgently needed. To be on a waiting list for months is not acceptable and could be too late for some. Also having a limit on the number of visits is not workable when it can take a long time to learn how to cope when someone has been unwell for a lengthy time.

I would like to see a collaboration between Council and our health organisations engage a part time local resident in each of the small communities as a Community Development Officer to drive and action objectives in plans such as MHWP and Community Action Plans, and stop relying on volunteers to carry out the entire workload - we are all getting burnt out or too busy to find spare time outside working hours. Staff that are behind so many of these plans seem to be all Ararat centric, and we need to employ small community personnel living within these communities that have the passion and drive to adv...
