Seniors

Seniors represent an important part of our MidCoast community! See below for information and events relevant to our local seniors.


Seniors Festival 2021

NSW Seniors Festival is a great time of year to celebrate our seniors and the important role they play in our communities.

Did you know more than one third of everyone living here on the MidCoast is aged over 60? If that’s not reason enough to celebrate this vibrant and active sector in our community, think about what they contribute to our daily lives. We draw on their wisdom and experience, as story-tellers they keep our history alive, they support our active volunteer network, and instil values in our younger generations.

Take some time to say thankyou to the seniors in your life, and support them to come together during Seniors Festival, 12 - 26 April 2021.
