“Council facilities like Malvern Valley Golf Course and Grattan Gardens Community Centre are hosting special events and the wonderful Prahran Market is holding a foodie tour.

“Clubs and organisations such as U3A Stonnington, Windsor Senior Citizens Club and the Probus Club of Malvern are also hosting events to give people a taste of what they offer.

“That is just a small selection of what is on across Stonnington during the festival.

“Public transport is free for Victorian Seniors Card holders from Sunday 7 October until Sunday 14 October so I encourage people to take a tram, train or bus and get to an event” added Cr Stefanopoulos.
