Eisteddfod-goers can talk to Age Cymru about the benefits of going online and general health and wellbeing at the Wrexham and District National Eisteddfod of Wales between 30 July and 6 August.
We will be at the event to promote our ‘Ageing Better Together’ campaign by looking at the life-enhancing opportunities offered by the internet and taking part in regular physical activity.
Visitors to our stand will be invited to set up e-mail accounts, learn how to shop on-line and have some fun with computers.
Free tea and coffee will also be available.
Age Cymru’s Healthy Ageing Manager Claire Bottomley says:
“Good physical health and an active mind help to maintain an overall sense of wellbeing and happiness and summer is the ideal time to learn something new and take up a hobby.
“Age Cymru will be at the Wrexham and District National Eisteddfod of Wales to speak to the public about activities that are suitable for older people to improve their health and wellbeing as well as demonstrating the huge range of social, financial and other benefits of being able to use the internet.
“We’ll be encouraging visitors to learn how to get online and there’ll be computers set up on our stand where we’ll guide you through everything from the very basics of setting up an email account to using Skype to easily keep in touch with family and friends all over the world.”
Age Cymru’s Head of Marketing and Communications Meryl Randell-Jones says:
“We’ve put a lot of work into making sure there’s something for everyone who comes to meet Age Cymru at the Wrexham and District National Eisteddfod of Wales this summer.
“Our staff are all looking forward to a fun-filled week so make sure you call to our stand to find out how you can improve your health and wellbeing and to get your free cup of tea or coffee.”
