Sideshow treat for the el­derly

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Quick News -

AGED care res­i­dents un­able to at­tend the Perth Royal Show were treated to all the ac­tion, ex­cite­ment and de­lights of Sideshow Al­ley at a spe­cial af­ter­noon tea last week.

El­derly vis­i­tors to the Clare­mont Show­grounds in­dulged their in­ner child with clown games, car­ni­val-style live en­ter­tain­ment and an an­i­mal farm. They also showed off paint­ings, quilts and crafty cre­ations that will make up the Perth Royal Show Aged Care Fa­cil­i­ties dis­play.

Royal Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety (RAS) WA pres­i­dent Rob Wilson said the event ac­knowl­edged and awarded the dis­play en­trants for their hard work. “It is an op­por­tu­nity to bring the Perth Royal Show to the aged care fa­cil­i­ties and for the RAS to cre­ate bridges in the com­mu­nity,” he said.
