Let's celebrate older people


To coincide with Older People’s Day on 1 October, we will be celebrating the contribution older people make to our community.

There is a packed programme of events taking place across the county throughout September and October that everyone is invited to.

Events range from cake and crafts, days out, film screenings, walking football, health walks and lots more. There is something for everyone!
