Cowra and Grenfell Meals on Wheels will host its first community events since COVID hit on April 14 and April 16 during Seniors Week 2021.

The two events are their annual Seniors Week luncheon and the return of Songs and Snags in the Park.

Service Manager Denise Makin said it was an exciting time for the whole team.

"For years we've celebrated Seniors Week, we just want everyone to have fun and enjoy the week," she said.

"We've really missed holding all our functions, It's been over 12 months, our last event was about March 6, 2020, and we haven't held anything since.

We just want everyone to have fun and enjoy the week.

"So our community have really missed those social outings, social inclusion and getting together, so this is a really positive thing for us".

Ms Makin said both events were a wonderful opportunities for the community to come together and celebrate.

"Our Annual Seniors Week luncheon is a COVID safe event that gets our seniors together, celebrating how wonderful they are in our community," she said.

"People can get together and have a nice lunch, catch up with old friends and make new ones, enjoying company.

"Songs and Snags is one of our annual events we used to run but haven't for the last few years, we used to hold it in Brougham Park 15 years ago.

"We want it to become an annual event again because it's about people celebrating, enjoying and laughing with everyone.

"It allows our seniors to come together and be entertained by some local musos with a free gourmet sausage sandwich cooked by our Cowra Rotarians.

"We'll also have NSW police on hand to have a contact session for people to ask them questions."
