Cockburn Community Trek

Every year we celebrate and thank the volunteers who lead the walking groups in the City of Cockburn. This year’s event was held at Manning Park on Friday 20 November 2015,  an extra special occasionl as Dianne Black, one of the Cockburn Heart Foundation Walk Organisers, received the national Golden Shoe award for best Walk Organiser from the Heart Foundation. Over 100 people enjoyed a walk around the lake and the beautiful view from the lookout at the top of the stairs, followed by a scrumptious healthy morning tea made by Friends of the Community. A very informative Welcome to Country by Aboriginal elder, Marie Taylor was followed by speeches and presentations by Mayor Logan Howlett and Trevor Shilton, Director of Cardiovascular Health at the Heart Foundation.
