In celebration of seniors

The month long celebration of the community’s seniors continues tomorrow at the Positive Ageing Fair in City Place.


The event, sponsored Cairns Regional Council, will host more than 30 marquees manned by supporters who will showcase their services and disseminate information on government agencies and community organisations.


Mayor Val Schier will visit the Fair that will provide entertainment, raffle draws, exercise demonstrations and an opportunity to meet Australia’s first Ambassador for Ageing, actress Noeline Brown.


“This will be a fabulous day for seniors to socialise and become informed on just what is on offer,” Cr Schier said.


“It is a well known fact that as a nation we have an ageing population and this will increase. Many of our seniors are active and healthy and this is a day to celebrate our wonderful lifestyle in Australia.”


Sunbus is offering free return travel from all suburbs to City Place on the presentation of a pensioner’s card.


The Positive Ageing Fair will be held in the City Place Thursday 19 August 10am-3pm.
