Come share a cuppa for Seniors Week

THERE'S nothing better than a cup of tea and a home-made treat.

Tyalgum Community Hall committee is again hosting a free morning tea and concert on Wednesday, March 8 as part of Tweed Shire Seniors' Week celebrations.

Co-organiser of the Tyalgum event, Dennis Scanlon, said guests would be entertained with a free concert and an art display from students at Tyalgum Public School.

"This will be a wonderful sharing over three generations," Mr Scanlon said.

"Many of the seniors hardly ever see their grandchildren - many of the children seldom see their grandparents - but if you want to witness perfectly natural you should come to see the absolute joy in the faces of our young children and our very senior guests. Sheer and absolute joy."

Morning tea starts at 10.30am.

A free bus is running from Tweed Heads, picking up at Murwillumbah and returning after the concert. For details and bookings, call Auriel Bartrim at 0429 985 395.
