Casbah at Cavanbah
SENIORS Week started in earnest in Coffs Harbour yesterday when hundreds of seniors rolled up to the opening ceremony to see a colorful bellydancing performance.
Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser officially opened proceedings.
The day focused on delivering useful information to older residents with many social groups and health organisations also offering advice.
Coffs Harbour fire brigade presented a talk on the importance of smoke alarms in the home while the NRMA discussed safe road use for pedestrians and scooter users.
Entertainment included performances from Julie Ross Dance School and belly and square dancers.
Senior Citizens Week committee president Barb Pearce is encouraging all seniors to register for the bus trip to Trial Bay on March 27. Tickets are $30 and can be booked by visiting Level One Rigby House or the Sawtell RSL.
