SENIORS Week is in full swing, with a variety of activities on offer.

One of the highlights is the Avenue of Honour exhibition running until May 1.

The exhibition is a wander down an avenue of historic photos and memorabilia showcasing the contribution made by Australian servicemen and women.

From the Boer War through to the war in Afghanistan, the exhibition is being held at the Darlington RSL Retirement Community.

Other events on the agenda are the Young at Heart Film Festival, Uki Public School's Seniors' Concert and Morning Tea, still life drawing inspired by artist Margaret Olley at the Tweed River Art Gallery and the cat Adoptathon held by Friends of The Pound.

"Older cats make great companions for older people," said Friends of the Pound's Sonia Trichter.
