Sally’s Ride started in 2002, when Sally Fletcher rode solo around Tasmania
raising funds for mental health in Tasmania. In 2009 Sally, in conjunction with the
Rotary Club of Central Launceston made a decision to expand the event and
create a community bike ride through the Tamar Valley, thus the Sally’s Ride
“Tamar Valley Cycle Challenge” was created. This new event consists of 4 rides
of varying lengths starting in Launceston and travelling through the Tamar Valley.
There is also a Corporate Team challenge with the winner taking home the
Forestry Tasmania Community Assist Corporate Challenge Shield.

Tahiti to Tasmania presents Tahitian dance classes for women of all ages. This beautiful dance style encourages people to get moving and excercise, whilst having fun in a friendly atmosphere. It is so uplifting to the individual or family group such as daughter, mother and grandmother, all dancing together.
I travel to Tahiti whenever I can to further my dance training and to bring back some beautiful dances which I then teach. I have been teaching Tahitian dancing in Hobart since 2010.
I am holding workshops in the Launceston over the coming months. People may phone or email for further details on workshops coming up, or download the advertising flyer of my last workshop to get some idea of what I have been teaching. CURRENTLY NOT DELIVERED IN LAUNCESTON. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info
