Senior Launceston residents are being encouraged to make the most of Seniors Week 2023 between Monday October 16 and Sunday October 22.
The City of Launceston Council has worked to include a number of fun activities in COTA Tasmania’s full program of events for older Tasmanians, including a lecture on ageing by Dr George Razay, workshops at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery and a free aquafit class at the City of Launceston Leisure & Aquatic Centre.
Launceston Mayor, Matthew Garwood urged older Tasmanians to dive into Seniors Week.
“The City of Launceston has pulled together a bumper program of activities for Seniors Week 2023, which this year carries the theme ‘Celebrate’,” Mayor Garwood said.
“It’s a great opportunity for older Northern Tasmanians to discover some new activities, meet new people and have a lot of fun.”
Program highlights include a lecture by Dr George Razay on the science behind healthy ageing, which will be held from 11am on Friday October 20 at Newnham’s Northern Suburbs Community Centre, a free aquafit class at the City of Launceston Leisure & Aquatic Centre from 11.15am on Monday October 16, and an ink marbling workshop for grandparents and grandchildren at the Queen Victoria Art Gallery at Royal Park on Saturday October 21, from 10.30am.
“There is an absolute smorgasbord of activities for Seniors Week 2023 in Northern Tasmania, and I encourage people to make the most of it,” Mayor Garwood said.
“We think the free aquafit class at the City of Launceston Leisure & Aquatic Centre will be particularly popular, as it’s a great way to maintain physical activity and make new friends.”
