There will be community activities catering to all ages in the West Tamar throughout October, with the council making the most of spring’s middle month.
The fun has already begun for children taking part in the Youth Advisory Council’s school holiday program, which began with a movie marathon on Friday.
This week’s schedule will wrap up with ten pin bowling on Wednesday ahead of three events in the second week.
They include a barbecue at the Beaconsfield Youth Garden on Wednesday, October 8.
Starting at 11am, the free event will give participants the chance to plant and harvest vegetables, paint garden beds, and assist with the installation of a park bench.
There will be the opportunity for more community engagement on Friday, October 10, through a Celebrating Healthy Minds event.
A bus will be available to pick up children at Beaconsfield, Legana, Exeter and Windsor for a fun afternoon of activities, including interactive stalls, a games corner, virtual reality, cat petting, and workshops.
The cost of the event is $3.
When school goes back, the West Tamar council will turn its attention to some of the more experienced members of the community as part of Seniors Week. Free workshops will be conducted at the Tamar Function Centre from 9.30am through until 12pm on Tuesday, October 16.
They include a senior driver refresher course and an introduction to computer and mobile technology from Windsor Computer Hub tutor Nigel Burch.
Seniors can register their attendance by calling 6323 9200. Toward the end of the month, families are invited to attend Neighbour Day festivities at Windsor Communiy Precinct.
Presented through the West Tamar council, in conjunction with the Seniors Advisory Group and the Youth Advisory Council, the day will feature guided tours of the Tassie Native Walking Trail, as well as live music from jazz and brass bands.
There will also be a range of activities for children. Neighbour Day will be held on Sunday, October, 21.
