MORN­ING teas, bus trips and a movie mati­nee are some of the ac­tiv­i­ties for Dou­glas Shire res­i­dents as Se­niors Week is cel­e­brated in Au­gust.

Mayor Cr Ju­lia Leu said Coun­cil and a num­ber of lo­cal not for profit or­gan­i­sa­tions had been work­ing, to bring a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties for the Shire’s res­i­dents.

“In ad­di­tion to cel­e­brat­ing Se­niors Week, the ac­tiv­i­ties give our res­i­dents the op­por­tu­nity to meet the staff and vol­un­teers be­hind our com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions and find out more about the range of ser­vices they de­liver.

“This year, morn­ing and af­ter­noon teas will also pro­vide res­i­dents of all ages with op­por­tu­ni­ties to pro­vide in­put into our “Age-Friendly” sur­vey,” Mayor Leu said.

“If you have an in­no­va­tive idea for an age-friendly com­mu­nity, please share your thoughts with Coun­cil staff, or com­plete the sur­vey form by the end of Septem­ber.”
