Seniors’ Clubs Around Point Cook
Residents of Point Cook Retirement Village are spoilt with the facilities they have on offer on their doorstep. With so many activities available in the village, residents can find it hard to drag themselves away, but exploring the wider community is well worth it. There is plenty on offer around the Wyndham area with a number of different seniors’ clubs tailored to older people and retirees.
Senior Citizen Clubs
There are a number of active senior citizen clubs in and around the Wyndham area, and these can provide an excellent opportunity for seniors to make new friends, participate in educational and physical activities, and enjoy a social outlet. As well as general senior citizen clubs, which operate from Werribee and Hoppers Crossing, there are a number of council-supported special interest groups in the area, including Point Cook craft group and Wyndham over-50s club. These groups can give members the chance to pursue their interests with likeminded people and develop their skills while enjoying a social outlet.
There are a number of active Rotary clubs in the Wyndham area with clubs located in Wyndham, Werribee, Hoppers Crossing and Laverton – Point Cook. The Rotary club is an extensive organisation with a focus on charitable work and helping in the local community. Recent local projects undertaken by the Rotary club include funding and helping create a new entrance to the Victorian State Rose Garden, and raising money to purchase 21 bikes for children with special needs at Manor Lakes P-12 College.
The Rotary club also holds regular meetings and social events. Although it is not specifically aimed at seniors, getting involved in the Rotary club can be a great way to meet people of all ages in the local community, and get involved in something worthwhile.
Although the University of the Third Age is not technically a club, this organisation provides opportunities for retirees to meet other seniors and develop their skills and interests together. With the aim of promoting lifelong learning and sharing knowledge and skills, the U3A has an active group in Werribee, which caters to the local community.
The U3A in Werribee has a very full and varied program of courses held during weekdays. The courses on offer include computer courses, photography, languages, history and yoga. The U3A also offers a weekly book club and singing and music groups that members can participate in. For those who prefer more social than educational pursuits there is a monthly lunch and movie group.
The Lions Club is an international organisation which focuses on charitable and community work. Through this club there are opportunities to get involved with practical volunteer work, fund raising, mentoring and much more. Membership is open to different ages in the community.
Whether seniors are looking to get active, help the community, learn something new or share their experience and skill in a certain area with others, there is bound to be a club to suit them in or around Point Cook.
