Celebrate NSW Seniors Festival 2020 in The Hills

Get involved in NSW Seniors Festival 2020 with a series of FREE local events, supported by The Hills Shire Council.

Hills Shire residents over the age of 60 can participate in a number of events and activities including guided bushwalks, dance classes, technology seminars, movie outings and so much more. Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said the festival, which runs from Feb 12 to Feb 23, celebrates the valuable contributions made by our senior citizens to bettering our Shire.

“This year’s theme is ‘love to celebrate’ and I believe we have a lot to celebrate here in The Hills,” Mayor Byrne said. “Our senior residents have been vital in building the foundations for the wonderful quality of life we all enjoy in The Hills.

“They have contributed so much time and effort to our local community, and this Seniors Festival is one way we can express our gratitude for everything they do,” Mayor Byrne added.
