Cinema safe zone for seniors
SENIORS Week has wrapped up with an action-packed weekend.
On Saturday, Crimestoppers arranged a free movie day for seniors at Warwick Twin Cinema and it was a full house for the 1955 classic, The Ladykillers.
Crimestoppers Warwick vice-president Ziggy Holter said it was an important event to bring seniors to the cinema and let them know it was a comfortable and safe place for them.
“It's important for seniors to get out and feel safe doing so,” he said.
“And it's a good opportunity for us to address them and tell them if they know anything about a crime not to be scared to contact us.”
Sunday was a day of “fun, food and fellowship” at the Senior Citizens Hall with indoor bowls and a barbecue. Seniors also danced the afternoon away with live entertainment courtesy of “The Grumpies”.
