Seniors Festival is an opportunity to come together and celebrate the contributions seniors make each and every day to our inner west community.

I was proud to attend the Inner West Seniors Festival at the Gumbramorra Hall in Marrickville last week to celebrate the extraordinary contribution of seniors, particularly those in CALD and migrant communities.

The event was organised by the Inner West Council in collaboration with Community and Cultural Connections, Leichhardt Women's Community Health Centre, Ethnic Community Services Co-operative, Newtown Neighbourhood Centre and Addison Road Community Centre.

The festival showcased the wonderful multiculturalism of the Inner West with performances from the Hoa Mai Cultural Group, Indonesian Senior music band and exercise demonstrations from the Marrickville Tai Chi Group.

Thank you to Mayor Darcy Byrne, and all the volunteers and performers for making the festival such a resounding success.

Seniors across the inner west are unsung heroes, providing vital support as carers for family members, running community and sports groups, and volunteering countless hours with local community groups.

Happy Seniors Week to all seniors in my electorate, thank you for all you do for our community.
