Wingecarribee Seniors Directory now available

17 December, 2013Posted in: Community

Local service information for the Shire’s senior citizens has become easier to find with the launch of the 2014-15 Wingecarribee Seniors Directory.

Launched in late November, the new issue entitled ‘Living Locally’, contains a comprehensive list of activities and contacts for the seniors of the Southern Highlands.

Chairman of the Seniors Working Group, Councillor Ian Scandrett said the new directory was an invaluable tool for the region’s seniors.

“This directory provides information on a range of services including emergency and government agencies, health and transport providers and support and leisure groups.

“Importantly, it also provides our Shire’s seniors with social and volunteering contacts, which enriches the lives of both the participants and the broader community,” Councillor Scandrett said.

8,000 copies of ‘Living Locally’ can be found at Council’s Moss Vale Civic Centre and libraries, local pharmacies, doctors surgeries, aged care providers, clubs and community organisations.

Councillor Scandrett was keen to thank the participants behind the production of the 2014-15 directory.

“Both the staff of Council and the advertisers who have supported this issue can be justifiably proud of their efforts in putting this new directory together.

“Special mention should also be reserved for the Seniors Working Group Committee for all their input,” Councillor Scandrett said.

The Committee is made up of Paul Broekhuizen, Joan Compagnoni, Marie Hodgson, Ron Schofield, Robyn Smith and Zelda Williams.

“I would remind our local community groups and organisations that should there be any changes to their group’s details, to please contact Council staff so the amendments can be incorporated in future editions.”
