SID and June Paskins have spent the past three weeks settling into their new Warwick digs and now, they're ready to party.

The former Stanthorpe couple moved to the Rose City's Oak Tree Retirement Village last month, just in time for the 2012 Seniors Week celebrations.

And with a jam-packed calendar of events, which includes concerts, arts and crafts, movies, texting lessons, puzzles and scrumptious food, they couldn't have picked a better year to make the move.

Mr and Mrs Paskins said they were already revelling in their decision to migrate north and were looking forward to meeting more friendly locals during the coming events.

"Everybody in Warwick has been so friendly and we are already loving it here," Mrs Paskins said.

"I think Seniors Week is wonderful and it gives us a chance to meet other people and get involved with the community.

"We will be heading out to the race day and I think I will go to the jewellery-making class we are having here."

Mr Paskins said the festivities, which span over more than two weeks, were a great way for seniors to not only have a good time, but also to attain important information.

The retirement village residents and their neighbours won't have to venture too far to enjoy a taste of the Seniors Week fun.

The village is set to host a number of events during this year's calendar of events, including a jewellery-making, painting and meditation classes.

Those with an appetite for great food will not be disappointed, when the village hosts its popular Italian luncheon on August 28.

Village manager Jenny Brown encouraged seniors to take a trip and enjoy one of the facility's events.

"We're all quite excited and everyone is getting into the swing of it," she said.

"I hope people will come out and see how much things have changed out here and take advantage of all of the great things on offer."
