South East Grey Community Health Centre - 2016 Recreation & Leisure Guide
The 2016 Recreation & Leisure Guide is now available. Copies are available at the Township Office or you can find an electronic copy by clicking the following link: 2016 Recreation & Leisure Guide
Healthy Kids Community ChallengeA variety of community groups have come together to focus on making it easier for children and their families to be physical activity and eat healthy. We know that physical activity and healthy eating can improve physical health, mental health and overall wellbeing!
But, we know that families have barriers to physical activity and healthy eating, that is where the Healthy Kids Community Challenge comes in.
The Municipality of Grey Highlands, Township of Southgate, and Township of Chatsworth are working with local schools, public health, the community health centre, other community groups, private businesses, parents and youth to identify ways to remove barriers and promote opportunities for healthy living.
The community will be working together over the next 3 years to make it easier to raise healthy children. You might see new policies or bylaws, changes to the physical environment, more social supports, or new and expanded healthy living programs. Although the Healthy Kids Community Challenge is coordinated by the Province of Ontario, our actions will reflect local needs.
|Run. Jump. Play. Every Day.
There will be a new theme that our community will focus on about every nine months. The first theme is Run. Jump. Play. Every Day, and you guessed it, we are encouraging physical activity.

Recreation & Leisure Guide *** Coming Soon
Ever wonder where to find information on recreation & leisure opportunities in your community? So do other people. That’s why we’ve decide to try out a “Recreation & Leisure Guide.” This guide will include programs and activities available to keep physically active and where to find subsidies in the municipalities of Chatsworth, Grey Highlands, & Southgate.
If you offer a recreation activity or program, please let us know and we will add you to our list.
Want to help out with these exciting projects?
Consider volunteering! Volunteer opportunities will vary throughout the year, but might include helping out at special events, picking up skates at arenas or taking skates to get sharpened.
