On the 12th & 13th of April we celebrated 60 years of the Seniors Festival in New South Wales. This year was the first time Tamworth Gardens Retirement Estate hosted the two day event organised by McLean Care. The event was filled with information on services for seniors and interactive activities.
The day began with Tamworth Gardens Operations Manager, Heather Charters, welcoming guests and residents to the 2018 Seniors Festival. The festival was officially opened by Tamworth Councillor, Helen Tickle, who discussed Seniors Living today, before starting the 60 year celebrations by cutting the delicious cake which was then presented to guests.
In Heather’s key note speech, she discussed the development of the Tamworth Gardens Retirement Estate over the last 5 years and was excited that Tamworth Gardens were able to hold the Seniors Festival 2018 in the newly opened Community Centre, which also boasts 31 beautifully appointment Assisted Living Apartments. With stage 13 of our Independent Living Villas now under construction, it was the perfect time to celebrate and give thanks to all those who have helped build the community.
The Tamworth Garden residents had a ball listening to guest speakers who spoke about plant growing, handyman tips, travelling and cruising, dementia, physiotherapy, yoga and meditation.
