We are inviting you to join in the Celebrating Age Festival in Telford, taking place 2-6 October, following the UN International Day of Older Persons on 1 October.
The festival is the first of what is hoped to become an annual event organised by Telford & Wrekin Senior Citizens Forum and Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin supported by Telford & Wrekin Council and Wrekin Housing Trust.
We have an exciting programme of events, some 60 events taking place across the week celebrating the interests and achievements of older people in Telford & Wrekin, encouraging older people to get out and about, meet people and have fun.
Several local groups, clubs and voluntary organisations have come forward to participate in the programme, some are theming their regular meetings around celebrating the achievements and interests of older people, others are holding a taster workshop, or special event specifically focussed on older people’s participation. Events range from singing for the brain, hosted by the Alzheimer’s Society, Men in Sheds will be offering a woodwork activity and Ironbridge Gorge Museums are putting on a clay workshop.
Events and workshops are taking place at venues across Telford & Wrekin, for further information and a programme of events call Lynne Carney on 07552 975 676 or visit celebratingagetelford.uk
