ABOUT 20 people enjoyed a
free healthy breakfast put on
by OPAL as part of Walk/Ride
to Work Day last Friday,
Program manager Georgina
Weissmann said the first event,
held at the Copper Coast Sport
and Leisure Centre, Kadina,
was well attended.
"A number of cars also
parked here and people
walked to work or they parked
their cars at their workplace
and walked here and back," she
"It's generated some talk
about the car park becoming a
permanent parking place for
those walking to work."
OPAL is also holding a
breakfast before the Moonta

Friday, October 19.
Workers are encouraged to
park along Military Road and
