Redbank Over 55’s Social Club

At the heart of the Redbank, lies the strong community spirit.

The community team at Redbank recently established another fantastic community group, for residents over the age of 55.

The community team developed this group after being approached by a couple of Redbank residents who felt strongly about having a group where like-minded residents of similar ages in the estate could enjoy each other’s company, whilst engaging in conversation and bonding over a meal and some beverages.

The first meet up of the over-55s group was held at the New Momo’s Pop Up Cafe in Redbank. With 25 residents in attendance, the coffee catch up couldn’t have been more successful. With cappuccinos and lattes being handed out left, right and centre and the buzz of good conversation in the air, the group had a fantastic morning all enjoying some smooth introductions, interesting chats and great coffee. They were so happy to be a part of the group and couldn’t wait to meet up with the group again at their next activity.

The second meet up was a blast, with all members heading out to the beautiful riverside Macquarie Park Boathouse for lunch to enjoy some of the best fish and chips found in the Hawkesbury. With such glorious weather, stunning views of the Hawkesbury river, a nice cool breeze and some amazing seafood, it was the perfect summer outing for the group. With numerous new members joining the group on this outing, the tables that were shared were never quiet, with eagerness to all get to know one another. It was clear by the end of this second outing that these once neighbours now friends were really enjoying being a part of the newly formed over 55s group.
