Many seniors across Wollondilly found 2020 and early 2021 to be a difficult and isolating time due to the ongoing impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, Wollondilly Council is inviting all local seniors back out in to the community to celebrate the Wollondilly Seniors Festival 2021.

Wollondilly mayor Robert Khan said the events would be safe for older members of the community to enjoy.

"We are encouraging our older residents to get involved with this year's Seniors Festival with a range of activities on offer across the shire during the months of April and May," he said.

"There is something for everyone, with a variety of Covid-safe, fun, accessible and inclusive activities planned across the shire hosted by local groups, service providers and council.

"We hope our seniors can take part and enjoy some new experiences, continue learning, share their many skills, get active and have fun."

The event will be held throughout April and May with several activities and events on offer.

Activities at this year's festival will include a nature picnic at Nepean Dam, Keep Up workshops with TAFE NSW, Seniors Get Active at Wollondilly Leisure Centre, dementia information workshops and more.
