This month’s Frankston Seniors Festival has been ‘reimagined’ with a huge range of diverse and engaging free online activities. Frankston City Council CEO Phil Cantillon said the council had partnered with Frankston U3A for this year’s festival, which is part of the Victorian Seniors Festival Reimagined 2020.

“The usual jam-packed calendar of events has been reimagined for all our seniors to enjoy at home while staying safe and not missing a thing,” Mr Cantillon said. “From exercise to sessions on current affairs, financial management, detective novelist Agatha Christie and much more, there’s something for everyone. Those who feel like blowing off a bit of steam can check out Rant, a light-hearted opportunity run by experienced U3A tutor Bill Puls enabling participants to ‘rant and rave’ about the things that matter.”

Frankston U3A president Andrea McCall urged seniors to get involved. “There’s plenty to keep seniors connected, stimulated, engaged and motivated,” Ms McCall said. “We are delighted to collaborate with Frankston City Council for Seniors Week this year – a year like no other. For seniors who don’t know much about what we do, I urge them to participate in Zoom sessions scheduled for the festival.”

The festival also includes the Coming Together Puzzle community art project. Participants will receive two ‘puzzle’ pieces to be decorated however they like. Once completed and returned, the pieces will be put together by an artist to make a giant puzzle before the final creation is displayed.  To register your interest, email positiveageing@frankston.vic.gov.au

PARC Frankston will provide free online exercise classes to improve bone strength, balance and keep participants connected to their community during lockdown, and Frankston City Libraries will host a range of online workshops, including family history and author talks.
