Marcella has moved to Lake Cathie from Sydney and said she was happy to be living in such a lovely part of the world.
Brenda is from Nowra and said she decided to move to the area because she wanted a change. Brenda was born in Nowra.
The morning tea at Lake Cathie was hosted by the North Coast Primary Network’s Healthy Towns team.
The event included a number of presentations about the online medical record, My Health Record and about the role of a GP in managing health. Attendees received a show bag.
Romayne Page from the North Coast Primary Network’s Healthy Towns team said about 28 per cent of residents who live in Lake Cathie are senior citizens.
