Shire of Mundaring invites residents aged 50 and over to celebrate Senior’s Week from 6 November to 13 November. 

To mark the week, the Shire’s Hub of the Hills will host a Community Connection expo on Friday 4 November and a Have a Go Day on Wednesday 9 November at Burswood Park. 

Shire President James Martin said connecting with one another has never been more important.


 “Seniors Week is a time of celebration for our community aged 50 and over,” he said. 

“It is also a time to acknowledge and celebrate our older adults who play an important role in strengthening and enriching community life,”

“I encourage all residents aged 50 and over to attend one or both events. These events present a great opportunity for our community members to connect and find out what services and activities are out there to support them.”

The Community Connection event will be held on Friday 4 November at the Hub of the Hills, 8 Craig Street, Mundaring from 10am to 2pm.

The event will allow our older residents to connect with fellow community members, enjoy a range of activities, refreshments and a free sausage sizzle.

There will also be a variety of community groups from across the shire showcasing their activities including the Mundaring Garden Club; The Hills Choir; Mundaring Probus; Mens’ Shed; Stone Throw Yoga; Helping Minds; Mah-jong; and more.
