The Engawala Champions


The Engawala Sport & Recreation Team were recently invited by the Heart Foundation in Darwin to participate in a Champions Forum with some of the workers and volunteers from their Community. The Sport & Recreation Officers, along with Priscilla Williams, Rachel Tilmouth, Nancy Tilmouth, and Sarah Williams all "champions" in Engawala, attended the Champions Forum.

The forum allowed several Shires to come together and share ideas. The Council’s Engawala Champions gave two presentations, one called Healthy BBQ & Disco, and the other about the Engawala Women’s Community Painting. The Council’s Engawala Champion’s joint painting was a big hit. The Champions were awarded the trophy for "Commitment to improving cardiovascular health". Sarah Williams very proudly stood up and received this award on the Council's behalf.
