In step with seniors
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.”
