Throughout October, a new Intergenerational Pop-Up Café for our older community members will be held at the Kingborough Community Hub.
Kingborough Mayor, Paula Wriedt said special café events would be hosted by the young participants from a Council-run, school holiday barista course.
“We hope this pilot is really popular so we can deliver a wonderful experience for our older community members, whilst facilitating some worthwhile training through the school holidays,” Cr Wriedt said.
“It will be a perfect way to learn and provide an opportunity for intergenerational activities.
“The Pop-Up Cafes will also have guest speakers.
“The first café event on Friday 7 October will have an expert guest speaker who will show everyone how to propagate indoor plants.
“There will be lots of hands-on demonstrations as well as coffee and slices provided by our young baristas.
“The next session on Friday 14 October will be presented by a health professional from Leap Health, who will discuss the benefits of healthy protein diets with participants.
“Other great opportunities coming up for Seniors include Council’s spring seasonal walks and Seniors’ Week activities.
“A hard copy of the program can be collected from Kingborough Customer Service, or visit Cota Tasmania website.” www.cotatas.org.au/programs/seniorsweek/
