Tweed Shire Seniors Week Committee chairperson Pauline Dow (pictured) said seniors looking for a new hobby will have no shortage of options including Sailability, miniature railways, radio control yachts, gardening, woodwork, motor homes, spinning and weaving and cake decorating.

“Overall I think we have found a winning formula which makes the Tweed Seniors Expo like no other seniors event in Australia,” Mrs Dow said.

“We have an enthusiastic, hard-working committee, a great venue with wonderful indoor and outdoor facilities, dedicated volunteers, great community support and an ability to open up to new ideas and possibilities every year,” she said.

Some new exhibitors this year include the National Heart Foundation walking groups, Qdeck (the Q1 building), The Murwillumbah Men’s Shed and the healing therapy, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.

The exhibitors include many health and service-based organisations including Intouch Continence Aids, SOS Medical Alarms, the Murwillumbah Hospital Auxilary, Tomewin Essential Oils and the Northern Rivers Community Legal Service.

Don’t miss the free reflexology sessions from the Tweed Reflexology Association or free hearing tests conducted by Australian Hearing.

The Tweed Seniors Expo will be held from 9am–3pm on Thursday 21 May at the Seventh Day Adventist Centre, Racecourse Road, Murwillumbah. The cost of Expo entry is $2.

There will be free shuttle buses from Murwillumbah, Tweed, West Tweed/Bilambil/Terranora and the Tweed Coast. Booking is essential for the Tweed, West Tweed and Tweed Coast buses. To book your seat contact Pam Veness on (02) 6670 2674.
