An abundance of activities around the Tweed

OLDER Tweed residents can enjoy more than 80 life enriching activities during the annual Tweed Seniors Festival from March 3-12.

The festival encourages the Tweed region's many seniors to involve themselves in new activities and meet new friends, offering a wide range of things to do from swimming to Mah-Jong and from historic walks to new technology workshops.

As one of the State's leading retirement destinations, the Tweed's Seniors Festival has earned a growing reputation over many years. The community eagerly supports the 10-day event and its varied program of functions and activities, so over 55s can sample things they might like to take up as regular pastimes.

The 2017 program, compiled by the Tweed Seniors Committee with support from Tweed Shire Council, includes active and passive outings. Get physically active at dance and aquatic exercise sessions, tennis groups, croquet and introductory yoga classes.

People wishing to stay mentally agile can enjoy Mah-Jong lessons, workshops on family history and retirement investment strategies, new technologies or safe social networking techniques.

Tweed Shire Council services and facilities will host a large number of events, including Grandparents Day at Tweed Regional Museum, digital photography workshops at Tweed Regional Gallery and family history sessions at the libraries.

Try aqua fitness at Tweed Regional Aquatic Centre Murwillumbah., get advice about solar power or enjoy a tour and light lunch at the picturesque Tweed Valley Cemetery.

The full Tweed Seniors Festival program is available at www.tweedseniors.com. Printed copies are available at Tweed Shire Council offices, libraries, community centres and local clubs.
