Official launch celebrates successful start for Seniors Village Hub

By January 23, 2023News

The Seniors Village Hub at 77 Kite Street will be officially launched at 11am on Wednesday 8 February as part of the 2023 Seniors Festival.

Orange Deputy Mayor Gerald Power said more than 130 people had become members of the hub since it opened and encouraged more seniors to give it a try.

“The hub is a welcoming place where older people can socialise, participate in inclusive activities or simply enjoy a cuppa and rest while they’re out and about,” Cr Power said.

GUEST SPEAKER: Author and host of the popular 100 Not Out podcast Marcus Pearce.

The Seniors Village Hub was established with almost $250,000 funding from the Australian Government Department of Social Services.

The hub aims to increase wellness and reduce loneliness and isolation experienced by older people living in Orange, Blayney and Cabonne, and caters for residents aged 55 and over, and Indigenous residents over 50.

It hosts a variety of activities including tai chi, chair yoga, art, technology and games, as well as one-off information sessions regarding issues affecting older people.

“The steering committee is looking forward to a successful year in 2023 and is always looking for more ways to provide seniors with fun activities that contribute to positive mental and physical health,” Cr Power said.

Special guest speaker at the launch will be author and host of the popular 100 Not Out podcast Marcus Pearce.
