The group, which is based in Malanda, came together to celebrate its 40th year in Mareeba over a cup of coffee and spent some time socialising with other seniors from across the Tablelands region. 

Eacham Seniors secretary Beryl Hanrahan expressed her love for the group and how it has positively impacted each of the members.

“There are seniors from 55 years old and up and we come from all the towns from across the Tablelands Regional Council area and from the Mareeba area,” she said. “We started mainly because we live in a rural area and because most of us are on farms. So, we thought it would be a great idea to have a place for everyone to meet and socialise and make friends.” 

The group also speak on issues related to the Tablelands region, often meeting with Councillor Dave Bilney to talk about ideas such as the English Street upgrade. Ms Hanrahan says she hopes the group will continue to be a place for seniors to socialise, engage and have a good time.
