In light of the upcoming FRESH Festival, The Daily Advertiser sat down with Matilda O’Connor, 17, and Mary Kidson, 79, to chat about growing up, love and everything in between. 

They compare notes on growing up and the best and worst things about their age. 

Mary Kidson is a former Wagga City Councillor, who’s favourite music is anything classical, especially if it has the cello. 

Matilda O’Connor is Wagga High’s Vice Captain, who has a love of Doris Day and Bill Crosby installed from a young age.

Wagga City Council has combined the traditional Seniors Festival and Youth Week celebrations to create an inter-generational schedule of activities for millennials through to baby boomers and beyond.

Events will include activities such as bird watching, skateboarding and parkour workshops.
