Liverpool Plains Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope, said it was gratifying to see so many Seniors heed the theme of this year’s Senior Festival, Let’s Do More Together, and join in the various events held around the Shire to celebrate their special place in the community.
“This year’s Mystery Bus tour was a great success with excellent feedback received from attendees,” Cr Hope said.
“Two busloads from around Shire enjoyed a picnic morning tea at Nundle Park, browsed the local craft shops and then appreciated the lunch served up at Dag Station. Host John entertained everyone during the meal.
“From the opening event of the Festival held at the Racecourse, through events held at the Werris Creek Library, Quirindi Home Support Service, a movie and the Dustier than Ever show held at the Royal Theatre, the bus tour and Healthy Living at the REC Centre, our Seniors have had a smorgasbord of things to do and share.
“An event such as our Seniors Festival takes considerable planning and co-ordination, so I’d like to thank and congratulate LPSC Community Events Co-ordinator Angus Fraser, Emily Saul, Andrew Ballard, Marilyn at Werris Creek library, Home Support Services staff and organisers Clare Stewart, Jeanette Marr, Kay Wheeler, Yvonne Woods, and Maureen Harrison and Annah at the Recreation Centre.
“Our Seniors are important and valued community members all year long.
“If any Senior or a relative has any queries about what services and programs are available through our Home Support Services, please call Quirindi 6746 4545 or Werris Creek 6768 7505.
“Annah at the Recreation Centre would be pleased to help Seniors find the right exercise program to help keep them fit and healthy and can be contacted on 6746 3122.
“Please leave your name and contact details if your call goes to an answering service. Seniors are always welcome at our libraries where they can not only borrow books, CDs and DVDs but also access computers which our librarians are always prepared to assist them with.
Thanks to all our Seniors for their contributions to our communities over the years,” Cr Hope said.
