The 2019 Seniors Festival will be held from Monday, February 18 until Friday, February 22, and will bring a positive message with this year’s theme: ‘Love your life!’
The opening ceremony will begin at 11am on Monday, February 18, and will include the presentation of the 2019 Senior of the Year and the presentation for the Community Group of the Year. Susan Conroy of Southern Tablelands Regional Arts will be the guest speaker, and there will be a chance to join Liz Barling and Dance for Wellbeing for a taste of dancing.
Activities are planned for the entire week. For more information on the 2019 Seniors Festival, or to obtain a copy of the program of activities, drop into the Goulburn Mulwaree Community Centre (155 Auburn Street).
Hospital Parking Consultation
As construction of the Goulburn Hospital and Health Service redevelopment starts to ramp up, some changes to on-street parking around the area have been proposed to ensure safety of patients, visitors, staff and residents, as well as minimising disruptions.
The proposed changes to parking arrangements within the Goulburn Hospital precinct are on public exhibition until March 8.
Two community drop-in sessions are being held during the public exhibition period where representatives of the project team and the council will be available to answer questions and receive feedback on the proposed parking changes.
- Community Drop-In Session 1, Goulburn Mulwaree Council Civic Centre, 184 Bourke Street, Goulburn, Monday, February 18, 4-6pm
- Community Drop-In Session 2 (feedback), Goulburn Hospital Community Health Building, 130 Goldsmith Street, Goulburn, Thursday, March 7, 4-6pm

Water Visioning Project
Can you imagine a Goulburn Mulwaree that is greener, cooler and a more beautiful place to live? We need our water supplies to be sustainable and affordable for the long term.
Goulburn Mulwaree Council and WaterNSW are planning for the region’s water sensitive future by having the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) run three interactive community workshops on February 28, April 3 and May 1.
An important first step in this initiative is understanding community needs and aspirations with regards to water—from public health and affordable services, to more liveable and climate-resilient cities and towns—and that’s what we hope to achieve with these preliminary workshops.
If interested community members are invited to visit https://watersensitivecities.org.au/goulburn/ to register their interest.
