Members of Tatura Men’s Shed cooked up a three-course meal for more than 70 people on Tuesday as part of Seniors’ Week celebrations.

Held in the public dining room at the Tatura racetrack, guests were officially greeted by Men’s Shed secretary Ian Grant.

Tatura Men’s Shed president Allan Johnston, who was also head chef, said members put a lot of work in preparing for the ‘feast’.

Mr Johnston said Tatura Men’s Shed was pleased to put on the luncheon for seniors.

‘‘There has been plenty of help from members in the lead-up to the event and on the day, with members making everyone feel welcome,’’ Mr Johnston said.

‘‘The luncheon took a lot of organising and everyone pitched in, even partners of members who made up desserts.

‘‘All-up it was a great day and everyone appeared to enjoy themselves.’’

State Member for Shepparton Jeanette Powell had encouraged local seniors to get involved in Seniors’ Festival events during Seniors Week, October 7 to 14.

‘‘The key theme of this year’s festival, the 30th year of celebrations, was to celebrate good eating,’’ she said.
