Celebrating Coffs Coast seniors

Coffs Coast residents can celebrate the positive role seniors play in the local community by nominating them for the 2024 NSW Seniors Festival Local Achievement Awards.

Member for Coffs Harbour, Gurmesh Singh said the festival and the local awards celebrate the contributions and achievements of all seniors.

“If you know a senior who helps make the Coffs Coast diverse, inspiring and active, then I encourage you to nominate them so we can acknowledge their contributions,” said Mr Singh, who is Shadow Minister for Tourism, Emergency Services and the North Coast.

“This annual festival is about celebrating the positive impacts of older people on our families and society.”

Nominations are now open for the local awards program, one of many initiatives to support the state’s seniors living happy, healthy, and active lives.

Nomination forms are available from Mr Singh’s electorate office, Suite 1/9 Park Avenue, Coffs Harbour, and should be returned to the office by Monday, 11 March.

Winners of the Coffs Harbour Electorate Local Achievement Awards will be announced during the NSW Seniors Festival which runs from 11-24 March.

“By highlighting seniors’ continued efforts in helping the Coffs Coast thrive, we are continuing to challenge ageism and empower seniors to overcome social stigmas,” Mr Singh said.
