Free activities on offer during Seniors Week

Seniors enjoying aqua classes at the Noosa Aquatic Centre

To celebrate Seniors Week from 15 to 23 August a range of free fun events and activities will be held across the region for local seniors to enjoy.

Mayor Clare Stewart said Seniors Week is all about giving our residents the opportunity to connect with people of all ages and backgrounds.

"It's also about acknowledging our seniors and showing our appreciation for their valued contribution to society," Cr Stewart said.

"This year marks the 60th year of celebrating Queensland Seniors, and this year, more than ever, people need something to celebrate, in the safest way possible.

"As Covid-19 restrictions have seen many older people isolated from their usual social groups, never has it been more important to ensure people remain connected.  

"Council's Ageing Well Noosa program along with activities and events in Seniors Week 2020 are wonderful opportunities for our seniors to try a new activity and meet new people."

Council's Community Development manager Alison Hamblin said it is a fantastic opportunity for our seniors to try something new, socialise and have a bit of fun.

"Seniors can come and enjoy a broad range of activities across the region including a range of strength, stability and aqua classes on offer during the week," Ms Hamblin said.

"Noosa Community Support will host a range of entertaining morning teas - including a gardening tea, a musical entertainment high tea, and an introduction to seniors exercise high tea.

"The health and wellbeing of our community and staff are our highest priority and we all activities will adhere to the appropriate COVID Safe guidelines."
