Blue Mountains Seniors Expo a Success for the Mountains

Over 300 seniors throughout the mountains flocked to Springwood Sports Club on Wednesday 5th November to participate in a Blue Mountains Seniors Expo. The last seniors expo held in the mountains was over 8 years ago. The expo showcased over 30 information stalls, local resources, demonstrations and various speakers to inform seniors and veterans (and or their families/carers) of the choices available to enable them to live independently in their own homes for as long as possible. The Expo was a partnership of Council, Tri Community Exchange, Blue Mountains Tafe, Blue Mountains Food Services. Western Sydney Community Forum and Springwood and Katoomba Neighbourhood Centre. This expo was not only a success in terms of the numbers of seniors there on the day, but also the great presentation by Council in terms of information/ stalls available. There were stalls from the library section of Council, the leisure centres, waste services, rates, roads and traffic, bushcare and councils aged and disability services information.
