Wollondilly Shire Council is offering free pool entry for seniors during the month of February in celebration of Seniors Festival 2020.

Seniors are encouraged to get active during the month of February by getting along to their local pool to swim or do some gentle exercise in a lane.

Seniors who live in Wollondilly will be eligible to access free entry into Wollondilly Leisure Centre and Warragamba Pools by registering their details upon arrival.

Wollondilly Mayor, Matthew Deeth said “We were blown away that an overwhelming 1500 seniors accessed free swimming in 2019, so Council has again opened the pools to allow our seniors to get active and social this year. Alongside free swimming, Council is proud to be partnering with local seniors services and community groups to promote one-off events and ongoing activities. Seniors are encouraged to get out, be active and enjoy what seniors festival in Wollondilly has to offer”.

Seniors will be able to access free entry to Wollondilly Leisure Centre, 434 Argyle St, Picton and Warragamba Pools, Farnsworth Ave, Warragamba from 1 February to 29 February 2020.

Council in partnership with local seniors service providers and community groups is also releasing its annual Seniors Festival 2020 booklet, showcasing one-off events and ongoing projects available to seniors in Wollondilly. Seniors are encouraged to hold onto their booklets for the year as it has ongoing seniors activities and an important step-by-step guide on how to access the Commonwealth Government’s Home Support Programme.
