Bookings for Wingecarribee Shire Council’s 2019 Seniors Festival activities are set to open Monday 21 January.

Council’s Ageing and Disability Officer, Nicola Robson urged prospective attendees to view the program ahead of the booking opening.

“With over 30 events planned for this year’s festival, we’re confident we’ve got something for everybody,” Ms Robson said.

Official events begin on Wednesday 13 February with the Love your Life – Leisure and Travel Expo and culminate on Monday 25 February 2019 with an Irish Morning Tea in Hill Top.

“Some of the excursions such as our Mystery Bus tours are extremely popular,” Ms Robson said.

“We recommend that anyone thinking of joining us, check out the program beforehand to see what events they may be interested in attending and book from Monday 21 January to secure their place.”

“The key message is to get in early to avoid disappointment.”

Returning for this year is the option of online bookings through Council’s website.

“We know more and more older people are confident computer users and this will allow them to browse events at their leisure and at a time that is convenient for them,” Ms Robson said.  “However we’re still more than happy to take bookings in person or over the phone.”

With the 2019 theme being ‘Love your Life’, the aim of the festival is to promote inclusive communities and encourage seniors to remain active and engaged in the community.

“With so many activities available we really want our Shire’s seniors to get out, try some new things and perhaps meet some new friends in the process,” Ms Robson added.

Wingecarribee Shire Council’s Seniors Festival is presented in conjunction with the NSW Government.
