Honouring midwives on their International day

Many of us have a midwife to thank for our safe arrival from the womb, these specialised 'catching' hands are a blessing to both mum and bub in hospitals and in the home.



Since she was a youngster in Leichhardt, Margaret Heggen has been involved with ‘physie’, the Bjelke Petersen (BjP) School of Physical Culture, which combines movement, marching, exercise, aerobic-type warm-up, ballet and yoga moves in a distinctive type of dance enjoyed now by thousands of girls and women in hundreds of clubs throughout NSW, Queensland, Victoria and Adelaide.

Having begun her ‘physie’ days as part of the Leichhardt Methodist Physical Culture Club and then being involved with the Lismore City Physical Culture Club for the past 32 years, Margaret brings a wealth of dedication, expertise and experience to the ‘physie’ ladies of Lennox Head along with her very capable and popular teaching style.

If training for inter-club, regional or elite competition, or perhaps merely exercising for personal fitness and enjoyment, is your specific goal for 2013, Margaret is happy to accommodate any lady (over 18) who’s willing to move to her music.

Physie starts today at the Lennox Head Community Centre and runs on Thursdays 5.45–7.15pm. For more information call Sharyn on 0400 242 340 or Margaret 6622 2126 and register your interest in joining this new exciting ‘physie’ club specifically catering for women.
