McIvor Times - - NEWS -

THE City of Greater Bendigo is call­ing for ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est from clubs, groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions in­ter­ested in hold­ing an event as part of the 2018 Bendigo Se­niors Fes­ti­val, which takes place from Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 7-14.

City of Greater Bendigo com­mu­nity well­be­ing man­ager Chris Kelly said the Bendigo fes­ti­val is part of the Vic­to­rian Se­niors Fes­ti­val, which com­menced in 1982 and is one of the state’s more en­dur­ing fes­ti­vals.

“The Bendigo Se­niors Fes­ti­val of­fers a range of free and low-cost events and ac­tiv­i­ties for older res­i­dents and we are look­ing for groups who would like to hold an event as part of the fes­ti­val to show­case their or­gan­i­sa­tion and pro­vide en­ter­tain­ment for our older res­i­dents,” Ms Kelly said.

“Groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions can hold open and come-and-try days, dis­plays, ex­er­cise pro­grams, in fact any ac­tiv­ity or en­ter­tain­ment that se­nior mem­bers of the com­mu­nity may en­joy.

“All events will be listed and pro­moted in the an­nual fes­ti­val pro­gram book­let.

“This year the fes­ti­val theme is ‘get so­cial’ and we would love to in­clude as many ac­tiv­i­ties as pos­si­ble on the pro­gram.”

If your group or or­gan­i­sa­tion would like to hold an event please con­tact Kather­ine deBat­tista on 5434 6195 or email
