Local grandparents, seniors and families are encouraged to connect across the generations this NSW Grandparents Day.
NSW Grandparents Day celebrates the contributions grandparents and older people make to their families and communities.
It’s a day to celebrate all the great things our grandparents and seniors have done, and continue to do.
Held on the last Sunday in October, this year NSW Grandparents Day will be celebrated on Sunday, October 29 at the PCYC Markets in the Mall in Armidale and a special mid-week event at the Guyra Library on Wednesday, November 1.
Armidale Regional Council CEO Peter Dennis said we want to celebrate the role grandparents and older people play in our society.
“It is wonderful to have the opportunity to host some fun, interactive events that bring young people together with older people in our community. The events provide a great reason for people to connect, share skills, thoughts and ideas!”
At the Markets in the Mall event in Armidale activities will include crafts, scrapbooking, knitting, garden pot decorating, a reading corner and dance.
In the Guyra Library on Wednesday 1 November Council will host a series of activities from 10am – 1.30pm including a morning tea and cake cutting, giant chess, knitting, reading, card making workshop and 3D printing.
NSW Grandparents Day is an initiative of the NSW Government that provides older people with opportunities to connect with their families and communities.
