Callum Wright from Bendigo Community Health, Debbie Lee from Lansell Plaza Charter Hall and Geoff Bowyer of Kangaroo Flat Enterprise are part of the Connecting Our Community program that runs throughout February.

IN partnership with Kangaroo Flat Community Enterprise and Bendigo Community Health and supported by funding from City of Greater Bendigo, Lansell Square Shopping Centre is inviting the community to join in the fun each Friday in March from 12pm to 6pm with themed activities.

The aim of the activations is to provide an opportunity for the Kangaroo Flat community to engage with a broader retail and services offering, creating more connections and supporting local businesses.

Each week will feature a Connecting our Community Event showcasing local businesses and Community Organisations to share what they do best with Bendigo locals.

Workshops and activities will be developed around key themes over four consecutive Fridays in March. Each week’s theme will showcase engaging displays and activations aimed at the wider Kangaroo Flat community, plus all activities will be free!


Friday, 4 March – Technology & Finance

The internet has transformed almost every aspect of our lives and is increasingly regarded as an essential service. Digital inclusion is based on the premise that everyone should be able to make full use of digital technologies – to manage their health and wellbeing, access education and services, organise their finances and connect with friends, family and the world beyond.


Friday, 11 March – Art & Culture

Showcasing all the amazing talent within our schools, theatre groups and artisan communities is the overarching theme of this week.


Friday, 18 March – Food & Health

Building on Bendigo’s reputation as the UNESCO City of Gastronomy plus also encapsulating sustainability, food waste, recycling and healthy habits. Healthy eating is vital for optimal growth, development and health throughout life and contributes to physical vitality, mental health and social wellbeing. Gardening supplies, recycling aids, unique ingredients and amazing food varieties will be on display.


Friday, 25 March – Active Wellbeing

Let’s help improve our community’s physical health, reduce risk of developing major chronic diseases, manage body weight and help prevent and manage mental health problems.
