The contribution seniors make to the community will be recognised and celebrated next month as part of the Seniors Festival, said Wyndham City’s Family Friendly Portfolio Holder, Cr Mia Shaw, announcing the Seniors Festival.

“One of the key events will be a lunch and dance at the Werribee Baptist Church, with classic songs from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s guaranteed to get you dancing”

“Older adults are actually our fastest growing demographic in Wyndham, with the population expected to grow from 15,523 to over 36,000 by 2036,” Cr Shaw said.

“These residents make a great contribution to our community. Whether it’s through volunteering at our libraries, men’s sheds, community organisations, or local schools—or through sharing their wisdom with us all—we don’t know what we’d do without them,” she added.

Cr Shaw said there would be more than 25 community events, activities and programs held at Wyndham City libraries during the festival, as well as three larger events.

“One of the key events will be a lunch and dance at the Werribee Baptist Church, with classic songs from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s guaranteed to get you dancing,” Cr Shaw said.

The Council is also hosting a beautiful walk around the historic Point Cook Homestead and Cheetham Wetlands, suitable for people of all abilities as well as a brilliant live musical performance, Athol Guy—the Seekers Journey. “Tickets are limited so be sure to book in quick,” she said.
