Swag of activities for older women
Words by Jodie Powell

Tech, mobility and coffee are on the agenda for the Mitchelton branch of the Older Women’s Network next month.

Convenor Judith Heindorff says the group, which has been meeting across the Moreton Bay Region and Brisbane’s north for more than 20 years, connects women through meetings in a welcoming setting.

“The aim of our group is to provide information to women relating to a healthy outlook on ageing and to meet in a friendly, social atmosphere,” Judith says.

One of the highlights of the August and September gatherings will be a session with exercise physiologist Tom Watson from Pivotal Motion Physiotherapy.

Tom joins the network’s monthly meeting on August 24 at 10am to talk about being more mobile.
