Reservoir Village Festive Day for Seniors
Thursday 8 October, 10am-3pm
Edwardes and Spring Street, Reservoir
Reservoir Village will once again roll out the red carpet for seniors.
The new Reservoir Community and Learning Centre will welcome back resident senior citizens groups and older residents to the new library and facilities in the heart of the Edwardes Street and Spring Street shopping precinct.
Free arts and dance activities, delectable food offerings and useful information on a range of topics from ways to get out and about and connect more with our community, to local services and programs, will make this a fun and informative day out.
While you’re at the festival, pick up a copy of the Darebin Springtime Community Events 2015 brochure to find out what other activities and events are happening across Darebin to celebrate older people.
Darebin Seniors Expo
Friday 16 October, 10am-2pm
Darebin Arts and Entertainment Centre
The Darebin Active and Healthy Ageing Advisory Board is a committee made up of older people living in Darebin. The Board help Council to think about ways that older people can stay active and connected to the community, as well as consider how programs and events can be welcoming of older people.
This year, the Board is hosting an expo at the Darebin Arts and Entertainment Centre, with the hope of helping older people to learn more about the activities and possibilities on offer locally.
Older people are interested in many things, including: politics; leisure and physical activity; reading, writing and storytelling; arts and crafts; health and wellness; culture and religion, and spending time with family and friends. This is an opportunity for not-for-profit community groups and organisations to help showcase what is on offer locally that may interest older people.
If you would like to have an exhibit, you will need to fill out and return an Expression of Interest form by Monday 24 August.
