The town of Forbes kicks off its line-up of NSW Seniors Festival events today with croquet at Halpins Flat followed by Tai Chi at the Forbes Youth and Community Centre.
“Once again we are thrilled to be able to offer this incredible range of activities to the seniors of Forbes,” said the Mayor of Forbes, Phyllis Miller.
“Especially after a year of everyone staying home and away from each other, it is great to be able to bring this Festival back to the people.”
The week of festivities includes workshops at the Men’s Shed, dancing at Forbes Youth and Community Centre and wraps up with the popular Seniors Variety Concert at Town Hall.
The concert will feature some amazing entertainment from local performers including Maz Rees, Martin Rein, Kimberley Ryan, Laurie Norris, Joseph Pereira and Forbes Seniors Singers.
Due to the popularity of the Concert, there will be two sessions; morning and afternoon, each catered for accordingly.
Entry is via gold coin donation, and all proceeds will be donated to the Forbes Red Cross NSW Branch.
Most events are free or a gold coin. Some events however do have limited numbers, so booking is essential. Catering will be supplied so please RSVP by calling Council on 6850 2300 or emailing email@example.com.
