Se­niors strong­hold

Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS -

MAN­DURAH has one of the high­est pro­por­tions of peo­ple 65 and over in WA (22.7 per cent), com­pared with 14 per cent for WA.

It is sur­passed by only a few coun­cils with much smaller pop­u­la­tions, such as Den­mark (25 per cent), Gin­gin (23.2 per cent) and Dan­dara­gan (23.1 per cent).

There are many op­por­tu­ni­ties for se­niors to get in­volved in the com­mu­nity, such as through Man­durah Se­niors and Com­mu­nity Cen­tre. The cen­tre has about 2000 mem­bers and had 95,000 vis­its last year.

This month, ac­tiv­i­ties, ser­vices, groups and clubs of­fered to mem­bers are avail­able for ev­ery­one to try.

The full timetable of ac­tiv­i­ties and pro­grams is avail­able at https://man­durah.wa. gov.au/whats-on/cal­en­dar/ se­niors/se­niors-cen­tre-open­week.
