Do you want to build a sandcastle or play ball and rope games on the beach? Well, if you’re an early riser you can head down to the beach with the kids, behind the Yum Yum Tree cafe in New Brighton, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 6-7am and join in.

Launching the free weekly beach wellness program organiser Jacqui Davis is holding an event called Zero to Hero on Saturday July 16 where you can join in a variety of games such as skipping, hopscotch, ball games, tug of war to name a few.

‘This is an opportunity for people to connect with their local community and just to have a place to belong and to have some fun,’ said Jacqui.

‘There will be a few tables of information on different areas of wellness and the connections between fun and play and our well being.’

The launch will be held at the Tom Kendall Oval, River Street, New Brighton from 10am until 2pm.

The beach mornings are open to everyone including families and people of all abilities. Children need to be accompanied by an adult.

Though enjoying the fun and games is a key part of the mornings they will also involve a short meditation as well as providing a chance for people share and connect.

‘Watching the sunrise is always a spectacular part of the morning.’
