Elise MeghiniA new Active Co-ordinator, Elise Meghini, has joined Age UK BANES and plans to offer even more clubs, classes and groups for older people in our area to enjoy. Elise says: “Whatever your interest, we have something for you.

“Whether it’s book groups, walking football, Tai Chi, walking groups, exercise classes or singing, we’re friendly, welcoming and looking forward to meeting you. Our activities are a great mood booster and a fantastic way to make new friends and stay active.”

Having built a successful career as a props buyer in film and TV, including popular drama series Doc Martin, Elise began working with community groups of all ages in Bath, but particularly relishes the opportunity of working with older people. “I’ve enjoyed hearing some fantastic stories about their lives and what they have experienced,” she says.

“As I get older, it’s important for me to be more a part of the community and give back to it. I see myself as a problem solver and want to provide great opportunities for older people to get and about and enjoy being a part of their community too.”
