Positive Ageing Seniors Festival
Calling all service providers, community groups and volunteers!
The Positive Ageing Seniors Festival will return again to the City from 1 November to 30 November 2019 and we need your help to make it bigger and better than ever.
The Festival features a month of activities and events for seniors in the community including activities during Seniors Week, and is an opportunity to recognise the important contribution seniors make in the community.
If you are interested in your business or group being involved in the Festival please email the City’s Community Development Team at email@example.com.
Pole walking is walking with a set of specially designed poles to assist and further enhance everyday walking. It is a fun and functional way to exercise and is considered an all-in-one workout that promotes health and wellbeing. It exercises the mind and body and it has been noted that pole walking can be helpful to people experiencing Dementia and Parkinsons.
For more information about events for adults run regularly at the Armadale Library, please visit the Library's What's On page.

Developed through consultation with the local community and service providers and based on the World Health Organisation’s Age Friendly Communities Framework, the City's Age Friendly Community Strategy ties in with the City’s Strategic Community Plan and Corporate Business Plan.
An Age Friendly Community is defined as one which recognises diversity amongst older people, promotes their inclusion and contribution in all areas of community life, respects decisions and lifestyle choices and responds to ageing related needs and preference. The City is committed to working to support its growing population of older residents and the strategy reflects this through key elements outlined in the relevant action plan.
