The Blacktown OWN Group began in 2004. We’re all about friendship. We believe staying connected is the key to staying healthy as you get older. So our aim is to make sure you have fun! Affordable activities take place three days a week. So on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays you’ll find the Senior Citizens Hall at Rooty Hill shaking with laughter, deep in discussion or drifting on a cloud of relaxation. There’s something to suit all levels of fitness, and all tastes:
- Gentle Exercise
- Heart Moves
- Line Dancing
- Creative Writing
- African Drumming
- Discussion Groups
- Cancer Support Program
- Travel Club
All activities are designed to empower you as an individual, while at the same time, increase and maintain your health and wellbeing.
At Blacktown OWN we are delighted with our multicultural membership. You will find new friends from all over the world ‑ Italian, Malaysian, English, Dutch, Maltese, Scottish, Chinese, Indonesian, Welsh, Pilipino, Irish. Each year we expand our family!
We have an amazing and hardworking team of 15 volunteer Committee Members who make sure things run like clockwork. We also have a really diverse age range amongst our membership. Our members range in age from 38* to 97 years – and all identify as older women.
At Blacktown OWN we have created a haven of friendship and sharing. In this environment Wellness becomes a lifestyle that is a pleasure to maintain.
