The Hills Shire’s Seniors Festival returns in 2022,
with a focus on “reconnecting”.
The Seniors Festival, which is taking place between 25th March – 3rd April, will feature an array of FREE activities for people aged over 60, in a COVID safe setting.
Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Peter Gangemi said this year’s Festival theme is ‘Reconnect’. “Our senior’s community play a significant role in The Hills Shire and it’s great that we can reconnect with them, especially after the many months spent isolating throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s also a wonderful way to recognise, thank and celebrate everything they do for our region”, Mayor Gangemi said.
“I’m proud that Council is supporting this year’s Seniors Festival, and I hope those who attend can take home some valuable information, feel empowered and more importantly have fun and make some new friends in the process,” Mayor Gangemi added.
Events happening as part of this year’s Seniors Festival, include:
