Seniors in for a 'Berry' good time

Seniors in for a 'Berry' good time Canterbury-Bankstown’s seniors are invited to enjoy a day trip to picturesque Berry, as part of the City’s annual Seniors Festival activities. Yes  

Canterbury-Bankstown’s seniors are invited to enjoy a day trip to picturesque Berry, as part of the City’s annual Seniors Week activities.

Three trips are scheduled for Tuesday 10, Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 April. The day will begin at 8am, with pickups at both the Bankstown and Campsie Customer Service Centres, and conclude at 4pm. It will include morning tea at Stanwell Park Beach Reserve and a visit to an Alpaca farm, before lunch and a chance for shopping in Berry.

Sixty-five-year-old Frank Fratto, who has enjoyed the day trips over the previous two years, is looking forward to experiencing the history Berry has to offer.

"It was just wonderful going to Wollongong and Bulli two years ago, and Kiama last year," the Bankstown resident said.

"You don’t have to worry about a thing. Just sit back and relax, take in the scenery, and let someone else do the organising. I went alone last year but I wasn’t really alone, so don’t let that stop you. I made some terrific friends on the bus."

Canterbury-Bankstown’s Seniors Week activities run from Wednesday 4 April to Sunday 15 April, and kicks off with a Persian art class at Belmore Senior Citizens Centre on 4 April (10am-noon).

This year’s Seniors Week theme is Let's Do More Together and includes the following:

  • The Seniors Got Talent concert at Canterbury-Hurlstone Park RSL Club, on Wednesday 4 April (10.30am-noon);
  • Cup and Saucer Creek tour, starting at Campsie Library and Knowledge Centre, on Thursday 5 April (9-11.30am);
  • Cupcake decorating classes at Lakemba and Campsie Library and Knowledge Centres, on Monday 9 April and 16 April (2-3.30pm);
  • A flower arranging workshop at Campsie Library and Knowledge Centre, on Tuesday 10 April (10.30am-12.30pm);
  • An Aboriginal Elders meet and greet at Bankstown Arts Centre, on Friday 13 April (10am-noon); and
  • Breakfast with the birds at Deepwater Park Wetlands, on Saturday 14 April (7-9am).

Mayor Khal Asfour said he was proud to deliver a record number of events for the festival’s 60th year.

"Our seniors are such a special part of the Canterbury-Bankstown community and continue to play a very important role," Mayor Asfour said.

"So, we need to take the time to say thanks and our Seniors Week program is a way of doing that."

Places are limited for the Berry coach trip, so bookings are essential! Tickets are $20, inclusive of morning tea and lunch, and go on sale at Bankstown and Campsie Customer Service Centres this week (from Thursday 15 March) until Monday 9 April, unless sold out prior.
