Seniors in Baulkham Hills will celebrate, learn new skills and build friendships at local NSW Seniors Festival events in April this year, thanks to NSW Government grants for organisations in Baulkham Hills to hold free and low cost events.
Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott said $200,000 in total has been delivered to organisations across NSW in order to allow metro, regional and rural areas to celebrate the festival’s 60th Diamond Anniversary year.
“The NSW Seniors Festival provides the perfect opportunity for Baulkham Hills seniors to have some fun and get involved in our community,” Mr Elliott said.
“I urge all Baulkham Hills seniors to take advantage of these events and get physically, culturally and socially active this April in line with this year’s festival theme, Let’s do more together.”
Baulkham Hills organisation Hills Community Aid and Information Services has received funding to assist with its diverse delivery of free and low cost social, financial and educational programs to assist the vulnerable and connect all communities in Greater Western Sydney.
Minister for Ageing Tanya Davies said the festival grants are a way for the NSW Government to thank older people for their significant contribution to communities across the state.
“There will be something for everyone to enjoy this year. Councils, small businesses and community organisations work tirelessly to organise events to help local seniors live life to the fullest, and I am thrilled with the activities we have funded this year,” Mrs Davies said.
The NSW Seniors Festival will run from Wednesday 4 to Sunday 15 April 2018. Further information on events and activities in Baulkham Hills and across NSW will be available at www.seniorsfestival.nsw.gov.au in the coming weeks.
