Locals can nominate seniors who are helping to make Pittwater an inspiring place to live in the 2021 NSW Seniors Festival Local Achievement Awards.

Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes said the awards celebrate the work and achievements of seniors in Pittwater who make us proud every day.

“There are seniors in our community who go above and beyond as volunteers, carers and role models,” Rob Stokes said.

“Often this work happens quietly in the background – so these awards are a great opportunity to shine a light on these dedicated volunteers.”

“If you know a senior who helps others and makes our community an even better place to live – I encourage you to nominate them.”

The awards are part of a schedule of events across the state for the 2021 NSW Seniors Festival.

It is the largest festival for seniors in the Southern Hemisphere and enables older people to engage with each other, their community, services and relevant businesses.

Winners of the Local Achievement Awards will be announced during the NSW Seniors Festival which runs from 13 – 24 April 2021.
