For the first time, the Wellness and Lifestyle Expo will be held at the new Manjimup Wellness and Respite Community Centre.

The April 1 expo aims to bring together a diverse range of exhibitors to inspire, inform, connect and support to better achieve an improved quality of life for seniors, their families and carers living in the region.

“Attendees are in for a real treat with the fabulous entertainment, give-aways and demonstrations that have been scheduled,” Manjimup Home and Community Care manager Liz Lockyear said.

Ms Lockyear said the expo was a great opportunity for the centre to host an event that showcased many organisations and services available in the community which people may be unaware of.

“These are things such as lifestyle options, government services, community links, health and fitness, social and leisure activities and more,” she said.

“It’s a fun and informative day which staff and clients alike look forward to.”

Stallholders at this year’s event include the Memory Van, the Independent Living Centre, the Shalem health check team, Red Cross, South West Counselling and local groups like U3A, The Men’s Shed, Probus and the CWA.

Ms Lockyear said there would also be some surprise entertainment.

“The expo is open to everyone in the community and promises something for everyone, regardless of age,” she said.

The expo will be held from 10am to 2.30pm on April 1, call the HACC team on 9771 6900 to book free transport from Northcliffe, Pemberton, Quinninup, Walpole and Manjimup.

Entry is free but a light lunch will be available for $5.
