In step with se­niors

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Cloverdale Easy Company -

OP­PO­SI­TION Leader Mark McGowan joined Bel­mont se­niors for a 3km stroll around Bel­mont Fo­rum shop­ping cen­tre last Wed­nes­day dur­ing Se­niors Week.

The Bel­mont Fo­rum Mall Walk­ing Group is sup­ported by the Coun­cil on the Age­ing and on the day, about 40 mem­bers took part in warm-up and cooldown ex­er­cises be­fore com­plet­ing three laps of the cen­tre in air­con­di­tioned com­fort.

“Mall walk­ing is a fan­tas­tic ini­tia­tive, it is a great way for older peo­ple to get ac- tive and so­cialise in the cool com­fort of a shop­ping cen­tre,” Mr McGowan said.

“The Bel­mont group are a great bunch of peo­ple, I had lots of fun hav­ing a chat with them as we walked around the Bel­mont Fo­rum.

“I hope we can see more of th­ese groups formed in more shop­ping cen­tres.”
