Ambition for Ageing 

Let's Talk - Crompton

Exploring the best in growing older

  • 16th September 2017 10.00am - 3.30pm
  • St Andrew’s Methodist Church, Crompton, OL2 7QU 

Come join a group of holistic therapists for an enjoyable exploration of active ageing. We are sharing experiences of Emotional Freedom Technique; mindful practices; laughter therapy; and exploring the concept of a ‘Book of Life’. This community initiative was started by Dr Susie Miles who wanted to create choices in her approaching older age.

Anyone aged 50 and over, who wants to get together in a relaxed setting with others to talk about the challenges and opportunities of the ageing process, is invited to join in. There will be something for everyone and lunch will be provided.

If you are open to different ways of thinking and learning new techniques, drop in for all or part of the day - and enjoy yourself.

Further information is available from Paul Oakley: Tel: 07554 868664 

Free entrance (optional donation of £3 towards costs).

Booking is essential for catering purposes either by phoning Paul or on Facebook:

Turn your ideas into reality!

People are being encouraged to put forward their ideas for making your community more ‘age friendly’ and ask for funding of up to £2,000 to get started.  It’s not just open to community groups to apply, you could apply as an individual, a group of neighbours or a local business with a good idea.

We are looking for ideas that:

  • increase social networks and opportunities for people to meet
  • reach more isolated people now or in the future
  • involve people aged 50+ in planning and delivery
  • have other benefits for the local community (e.g. across generations)
  • consider sustainability or create some kind of legacy that will benefit the community

Help is available to put your proposal together if you need it so chat to us about your idea and we can help you fill in the application form. 

For more information or to request an application form, please contact Nicola Shore on 0161 622 9257 or email
