"To celebrate the important contribution seniors make to our community, Council hosts a variety of activities, events and programs every year during the NSW Seniors Festival. The Seniors Festival is a fantastic opportunity for people aged 55 and over to make new friends, access support, get active, stay informed and try something new. Our event program is run in partnership with several local services and includes a wide variety of activities, from creative art classes to exercise sessions and food workshops. There are more than 30 events planned as part of the Festival, ensuring there is an activity to suit everyone. I hope you have an enjoyable time throughout our Festival."
