The Northam Town Hall was abuzz with cheer and friendship as our seniors met up for the Shire of Northam’s Seniors Week morning tea. 

WA Seniors Week 2018 runs from Sunday, November 11 to Saturday, November 17 and is a chance for the community to say thankyou to the elders in the community for their contribution over the years. 

More than 40 seniors and staff from the Shire of Northam met at the town hall for a morning of food, tea and music. 

The celebrations do not stop with the morning tea. 

Seniors are also invited to come and see the Avon Valley Arts Society Inc Art for Grown-Ups exhibition for the duration of Seniors Week. 

The exhibition will consist of works by AVAS Inc. members and will be open to view by groups of residents from aged care facilities, their carers and other community members by appointment.
