The NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards are a way the NSW Government is recognising seniors during the 2019 NSW Seniors Festival.

“I am thrilled that seniors across the State are being recognised under this program for their extraordinary contributions our families and communities,” Mrs Davies said.

“The 2019 NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards give our local communities an opportunity to say thank you to seniors.”

NSW Seniors Festival is the largest festival for seniors in the Southern Hemisphere and was established by the NSW Government to support seniors to participate in the community and connect with others.
