“Seniors make a real difference to local families, recreational groups, businesses and organisations, and we want to celebrate them,” Mr Coure said.
“I am sure everyone in the Oatley electorate knows an older person who deserves to be recognised, so I encourage you to nominate them and show them how much they are appreciated for all they do,” he said.
Minister for Ageing, Tanya Davies MP urged all members of the public to take this opportunity to celebrate the older people in their lives.
“Seniors have a wealth of knowledge and experience to offer, and they continue to make significant contributions to communities across NSW,” Mrs Davies said.
“The NSW Seniors Festival Local Achievement Awards are a special way in which every community can thank local seniors for their hard work, skills and generosity.”
