Central Coast Council is once again celebrating the NSW Seniors Festival, with numerous events being held across the region from 25 March to 3 April, to provide older residents an opportunity to participate in, contribute to and be included in, community life.

The largest event for seniors in the southern hemisphere, NSW Seniors Festival is especially significant on the Coast, with many of the Coast's population aged 60 years or older.

Council Administrator, Rik Hart said the Festival helps to connect seniors with the range of local services, lifelong learning, and leisure activities available across the region.

"With a growing ageing, but vibrant, population on the Central Coast, Council is committed to celebrating our older residents by promoting inclusion, independence and quality of life for all community members.

"We have put together a diverse calendar of events which seniors can access and enjoy from 25 March to 3 April, including educational workshops, fitness programs and entertainment that will enrich their lives and support them to age positively as they grow older.

"A highlight of the Festival is the Seniors Expo on 31 March, at Wyong Race Club, which will feature a variety of stallholders from services and community groups around the Coast that support older people to age in a healthy and positive way."

"Older residents are active in all facets of community life and add significant value and knowledge to our region as workers, volunteers, neighbours, friends, parents and grandparents," Mr Hart said.

"This is your time to shine as a senior on the Coast - have fun and celebrate your age, wisdom and experience in a fun and friendly environment!"
