Nominations open for Local Seniors Achievement Awards

Member for Oatley, Mark Coure, announced that nominations have once again opened for the Seniors Festival Local Achievement Awards in the St George area.

These awards recognise the importance and dedication of seniors for their hard work throughout local communities across the state.

“This is such an important time of the year to recognise everything that our local seniors have given to the St George community. They are small business owners, volunteers and so much more,” Mr Coure said.

“Seniors make a wonderful impact locally, often with little to no recognition for their efforts. If you know any seniors who make a difference in our community, I encourage you to nominate them for an award.”

Alongside the awards, multiple free or discounted events are expected to draw an estimated 250,000 people during the NSW Seniors Festival, set to take place from 11 – 24 March 2024.

“There is so much on offer in addition to these awards, so I highly recommend that locals go and check out all the Seniors Festival has to offer,” Mr Coure said. “Currently, it is the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.”
