Free class to stay younger

Gymgoer Suzane May.

WHETHER its enjoying a meal or kicking up your heels at the gym, there is plenty to celebrate during this month’s Seniors Festival at Dooleys Lidcombe Catholic Club.

Present your NSW seniors card between February 12 and 23 at the John Street Cafe for a $3.50 coffee and cake deal, or head to Lloyds Bistro and check out the expanded menu of early bird specials available from 12-1pm for lunch or 5-6pm for dinner.
Tickets are also available for the Those Were The Days show starring Lisa Cook for $10 (members) or $15 (guests). Singalong with music from the sixties and enjoy a light lunch in the Wattle/Waratah room on Saturday, February 15, from 1pm. Bookings: 8745 6100 or visit the member services desk.
It is also the perfect time to get off the couch and check out one of the exercise, Tai Chi or mediation classes on offer at Dooleys Health and Fitness from February 17 to 21.
The classes are free for NSW seniors card holders, providing you are either a Dooleys Club member or able to join, and manager Susan Lahood says anyone who decides to continue with a class will also be able to join the gym at a discounted rate after Seniors Week.
She says age doesn’t have to be a barrier to exercise, a fact enthusiastically demonstrated by both group fitness instructor and personal trainer Michael Wilkinson and 88-year-old gym member Suzane May.
