Fears to be faced

Fears to be faced

People with anxiety disorders or phobias can a join a new self-help group which started last week in Mount Druitt.

The group is part of the Facing Anxiety program developed by the Mental Health Association NSW and runs for 12 weeks, teaching people how to overcome their fears and anxieties.

The group is free.

Waste facility welcomed

Mulgoa MP Tanya Davies has welcomed news that the federal government is looking to establish a national radioactive waste management facility in the Northern Territory.

It may mean waste from Hunters Hill will go there instead of SITA at Kemps Creek.

"This is an issue that was thrown in the too-hard basket by state and federal Labor who were more interested in playing politics than identifying a solution," Mrs Davies said.

Seniors invited

St Clair Youth Neighbourhood Team will host its annual Seniors Week luncheon on March 19, 10am-2pm, at Erskine Park Community Centre, 57 Peppertree Drive. There will be entertainment and lucky door prizes.

A morning tea will be held the following day (March 20), 10am-1pm, at Colyton Neighbourhood Centre, corner of Jensen and Willoughby streets.

Transport is available but bookings are essential. RSVP to either event this week for catering purposes.

Details: 9834 2708 or info@scynt.org.au.

Zumba on offer

Ripples St Marys Leisure Centre is hosting a free Zumba Gold class at 1.30pm on March 21 as part of Seniors Week. It is a low-intensity, low-impact class designed for the "mature adult".

Almost 500 people took part in Zumba Gold classes at Ripples last year.

The class will be followed by afternoon tea.
