AN antique roadshow-style event will take place in Wanneroo for WA Seniors Week next month.

The City of Wanneroo will host the event for residents on November 14 as part of its Seniors Week activities with Peter McKenzie from McKenzies Auctioneering, Valuers and Exhibitions appraising items and provide valuations, free of charge.

Residents can bring family heirlooms, op-shop finds, antique jewellery and bric-a-brac to be valued.

Afternoon tea is included and bookings must be made via https://antiquesuncovered.eventbrite.com.au .

The Antiques Uncovered event is supported by the Department of Communities and the Council of the Ageing WA.

City of Wanneroo libraries are hosting free coffee catch ups during Seniors Week for people who are interested in getting the most out of going online.

The federal initiative Be Connected aims to increase digital literacy in the community.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said Seniors Week provided an opportunity to recognise the City’s older residents.

“Our seniors are such a valued and integral part of the City of Wanneroo, contributing to the City’s community spirit and social fabric,” she said.

Be Connected sessions will cover topics such as searching for information and using email, shopping online, using social media and smartphones.

The free coffee sessions will take place at Girrawheen Library on November 12 from 1.30pm to 2.30pm, Yanchep/Two Rocks Library on November 13 from 10am to 11am, Clarkson Library on November 13 from 1.30pm to 2.30pm and Wanneroo Library on November 14 from 1.30pm to 2.30pm.
