Brimbank residents have a unique opportunity to contribute to the health and wellbeing of their community.

All they need to do is fill out a survey which is investigating the long-term impacts of the Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Centre, currently being built in Keilor Downs.

By completing the survey, you can also go into the draw to win either a $200 Coles voucher, a six-month membership to Brimbank Leisure Centres, or 10 family swim passes. The survey is now open and should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Visit https://bit.ly/HealthyBrimbank to complete the survey which closes on 30 June.
