Coffs’ Seniors are being given the opportunity to revisit their pasts and their futures in a series of low-cost and free events and activities for mind, body and soul during Seniors Week from March 3-12.
“There’s so much on offer – from live music, yoga, health expos, art sessions, mind-challenging debates, food events, free guided tours of the Museum and up-to-the-minute technology clinics. There’s something to appeal to everyone,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.
“This is our chance to acknowledge and appreciate the contributions that the older members of our community make – and give something back.”
