Se­niors train­ing for games

Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS -

THEY may not be Olympians or triath­letes but the de­ter­mi­na­tion to suc­ceed among se­niors at Mercy Place in Man­durah can­not be dis­puted.

Ten res­i­dents have formed a team to com­pete in the 2017 Aged Care Games and train­ing is in full swing, with hockey and skit­tles at the top of the list.

Dur­ing the an­nual event, dozens of teams from aged care homes com­pete to gain the high­est score for a chance of win­ning the per­pet­ual tro­phy.

Ser­vice man­ager Christina Ven­ables said the team was prac­tic­ing reg­u­larly.

WHEN it’s too cold to go to the beach, visit the beach at Man­durah Fo­rum. The Kids Beach Hut play area near the Cof­fee Club is a new ar­rival at the com­plex and has a gi­ant oc­to­pus and beach ball pit . It is in­tended for three to six-year-olds and is open ev­ery day.
