We’ve highlighted some local events to add to your calendar in the coming months so you don’t miss the opportunity to get involved and give back to our community.
De-Stress and Refresh
In honour of taking some time to relax and appreciate the good things in life, we’ve put together a handy guide to de-stressing at St Ives for Lifeline’s Stress Down Day on July 24th. Start with an invigorating facial at St Ives Professional Skin Care and follow that with a relaxing massage at Lee Massage and Acupuncture. After lunch at one of our great cafes, get a mani pedi at St Ives Nails and then finish the day off with a shampoo and blow dry at Boffa Hairdressing.

Tame Your Mane
Your strands might get a little wild after taking part in Crazy Hair Day, which raises awareness for Cystic Fibrosis on July 28th. Take yourself into one of our great salons to reset back to a fresh, shiny and bouncing do. The team at John Brennan Hair have the men in your life covered and, for the women, head into Salon St Ives Hairdressing Express and let them work their magic reviving your mane.

Get Out Your Green Thumb
31 July is officially National Tree Day, however Wahroonga Waterways Landcare have put together an event on the 30 July to plant trees in association with Planet Ark. The aim is to revive the biodiversity of the area and show a little love to our planet. The whole family can get involved and the event is only a short drive or train trip from St Ives.

Drag Out Your Denim
Everyone’s favourite excuse for wearing jeans to work is happening once again on the 4 August. Jeans for Genes Day raises much needed funds and awareness for genetic research, while allowing you to forget about corporate dress codes for a day. If your denim is looking a little tired, pop into St Ives Shopping Village and visit one of our many fashion retailers to help lift your look..

Keep St Ives Beautiful
We all love St Ives, so it’s important we do our bit to keep our neighbourhood clean, tidy and safe for all. Keep Australia Beautiful Week runs from the 22nd to the 28th of August and encourages the community to tackle our global issues with litter by putting your rubbish into the bin and picking up any stray bits you see. It’s a great chance to come together and put a little extra focus on making sure our streets stay beautiful and litter-free.
