The NSW Seniors Festival runs from Friday 25 to Sunday 3 April with a variety of activities and entertainment available for all seniors to enjoy.
Mayor of Bathurst Cr Robert Taylor said each year the festival encourages participants to be active, social and healthy and is an opportunity to make new friends or reconnect with ones we haven’t seen for a while.
“The Seniors Festival is our chance of saying thank you to senior members of our community for their service and contribution. It’s also an opportunity for different generations to come together and join with seniors to celebrate.
“The local organising committee has created a diverse program of events with highlights including a scenic drive and pub lunch at The Halfway Hotel Hampton, Kamahl performing at the RSL club and free active seniors exercise classes at CityFit.
“Council will also be providing guided tours of the Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum, the Bathurst Rail Museum plus a range of activities at the library including a movie matinee and an email workshop. A fraud awareness workshop will be held in conjunction with NSW Police at BMEC.
“I would like to encourage seniors in our community to get involved in the many wonderful events being held in and around our city,” Cr Taylor said.
