Te Wiki Kaumātua – Seniors' Week is a series of community events and activities for our older people, all about building connections and reducing social isolation in later life.

This year’s theme is Across Generations, where we offer ways to connect people from all generations and backgrounds – whether that be through cooking classes, social media 101 workshops or yoga in the park.

Wellington City Council is joining forces once again with Hutt City Council, Upper Hutt City Council, Age Concern and Sport Wellington to put on the Senior Regional Games.

It’s a fun competition suitable for seniors of all levels of fitness and is a great opportunity to take part in physical and social activities, meet new people and find out about what’s going on in the community.

This event is about knocking down boundaries and challenging assumptions that the older you get, the fewer opportunities to stay active there are. From badminton to bowls to dancing, there will be something for everyone. So bring your friends and whānau to celebrate together, participate in friendly competition, and try something new!

There are no restrictions on who can come; however, the event is designed to celebrate older independent adults (60 years plus) in our communities.
