Participate in Seniors Week – Oct 1 to 8

with one comment

The Nationals Member for Benalla, Bill Sykes is urging seniors to take advantage of Seniors Week Festival which runs from Sunday 1 October to Sunday 8 October.

Seniors week which normally is held in March has been rescheduled to October due to the Commonwealth Games.

Events and activities have been organised to cater to seniors with a wide range of interests and levels of involvement. The full range of activities is published in the “Victorian Seniors Festival 2006 Booklet”.

Dr Sykes said, “Copies of the program can be obtained from Coles and Bi-Lo Supermarkets throughout the North East. There is instruction in the program booklet on how to make bookings for the events organised for Seniors Week”.

Free public transport will be available in the Metropolitan area during seniors week and importantly for country Victorians, V/Line will be offering free transport days from Tuesday 3 October through to Sunday 8 October, except for Friday 6 October. Seniors are reminded to travel with their seniors cards.

“Bookings for travel will be required on the Albury-Melbourne Line”, Dr Sykes added.

The Nationals continue to fight for better travel concessions for country seniors which are currently less favourable than those for city seniors.

Dr Sykes continued, “There are activities locally as well as in Melbourne that seniors are encouraged to take advantage of, such as an afternoon tea dance to be held at the Wangaratta Town Hall, Denise Drysdale performing at Wangaratta Arts Centre, the Forestry Heritage Museum at Beechworth and the Weary Dunlop Country Trail in Benalla.

“There will be learning and listening expos in Melbourne as well as theatre, films, open days and many other events of interest to seniors”.

Information on ticketing for events can be obtained from Information Victoria on 1800 136 762. There will be no “over the counter” ticket sales.

For further information about local activities contact your local council or Seniors Information Victoria on 1300 13 50 90
