Seniors Events in March

There is something for mind, body and soul with the City of Gosnells seniors’ events series in March.

Local seniors can test their general knowledge with a fun quiz afternoon on Saturday 10 March, learn about the wide-ranging benefits of sleep on Tuesday 13 March, stroll through Sculptures by the Sea on Wednesday 14 March, discover how to keep their grandchildren safe on Monday 26 March and wet a line with a day’s fishing on Tuesday 27 March. 

City of Gosnells Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said there was a good mix of activities to give seniors plenty of opportunities to learn, socialise and have fun. 

“Being active and involved in your community is key to physical, social and mental wellbeing, which is the City’s focus for all seniors’ activities,” Mayor Dewhurst said.

Bookings for the Quiz Afternoon to be held at the Addie Mills Centre from 2pm to 4.30pm on Saturday 10 March can be made from Friday 16 February.

Seniors can make their own table of eight or join a group and meet new people. The $15 entry fee will be pooled for prize money and refreshments are BYO.

“We all know sleep is important but our free Sleep Seminar on Tuesday 13 March at The Agonis in Gosnells will discuss why sleep is vital for health and wellbeing and provide tips to improve the quality of your sleep,” Mayor Dewhurst added.

The Keeping Kids Safe presentation from 9.45am to 11am Monday 26 March at The Agonis is ideal for any grandparent who provides care for their grandchildren. This free interactive event gives grandparents practical tips and covers a range of safety issues.

Participants can inspect amazing artworks by international and local artists at the hugely popular Sculptures by the Sea at Cottesloe Beach on Wednesday 14 March.

Fishing enthusiasts and those who’ve never gone fishing will equally enjoy a visit to Golden Ponds in Baldivis on Tuesday 27 March. Equipment and bait are supplied at this catch-and-release venue, which offers a relaxing experience for all anglers but is especially good for people who have never fished before. Refreshments will be provided. 

Participants in each of these events must be 55 years and over and live in the City of Gosnells. Places are limited, so please register by calling 9391 6030. More information is available via the City’s website at www.gosnells.wa.gov.au.
