Each year in March,
NSW Seniors Festival is celebrated in the City of Canterbury Bankstown with a program of events. These include activities which are social or recreational in nature, as well as entertainment, sport and exercise activities. We also hold workshops on health, well-being and quality of life strategies.
A packed program of activities took place for this year's Seniors Week in April.
The week-long celebrations were for local residents aged 60 and over in recognition of the valuable role they have and continue to play in the Canterbury-Bankstown community.
Concerts are typically held, as well as exciting day trips. Seniors can also partake in activities such as golf, tennis, creative ageing programs, a garden expo, and educational library sessions.
In the past, we have invited senior citizens to participate in a photographic exhibition celebrating the beauty and diversity of seniors within the City. The exhibition was displayed at Campsie Library and Knowledge Centre. Many visited the exhibition to take a glimpse into the lives of our community who have strived to make our City so special. The exhibition is an initiative of Nick Baldas in partnership with the City.
