Cultural cook off, tours, golf fun for Seniors Fest

COULD the next Gordon Ramsay or Maggie Beer be living next door?

All will be revealed when senior residents come together at Guildford Community Centre to put their cooking skills to the test at the ‘Cultural Cook Off’.
Seniors are invited to bring out their “inner chef” on Thursday, March 21 (10am-noon) and enjoy a day of cooking, fun and laughter over a meal, with the best dish to be posted on Cumberland Council’s websites.
It’s one of the many activities for residents to get involved during the Seniors Festival, March 11 to 24.
Another exciting activity will be the always popular Seniors Festival Golf Day at Woodville Public Golf Course on Tuesday, March 14, 7.30am to 2pm.
