1st October – International Older Peoples Day

We want to celebrate IDOP and also take the opportunity for us to get together and appreciate our fantastic local community.

We will be holding two leisurely walk and social events on Friday 1st October.

12 - 2.00pm - Walk followed by light lunch and hot drinks, starting and ending at  Brinnington Leisure Centre, Community Room SK5 8LS.

2.30 - 4.00pm - Walk around Woodbank Park followed by cake and hot drinks. Meeting near the carpark at the Turncroft Lane entrance SK1 4JR

Both walks will be suitable for wheelchairs and you can do as much, or as little of them as you like! The main aim is to get together and enjoy the fresh air. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us, but they will go ahead even if it rains so bring your brollies!!

We would love to see as many people as possible but please book your place by emailing: info@ageukstockport.org.uk or you can just call 0161 480 1211 so we know how many lunches and cakes we need!

Digital Event Guidelines

The “Positive Smiles” and “Knit and Natter” groups are a chance to meet people virtually for a chat and a coffee and share some positive support to help you through these tough times.

To make sure you get the most from these groups, here are some basic guidelines to ensure it’s a positive experience for all.

  • When logging onto the zoom meeting, make sure you are logged in under your own name so we know who you are and can let you in.
  • During the meeting try not to speak all at once, raise your hand so we know you want to say something.
  • If there are too many people talking the host will hold up a red card so one person at a time can talk.
  • Remember to mute your audio when not speaking to avoid background noise.
  • This is your group so please feel free to share your positive stories and ideas for discussion.
  • To ensure the group is a positive experience for all please avoid using any language or terminology which may offend others. The host may ask you to leave the group if necessary.
  • Please respect the confidentiality of others by not sharing personal information outside the group.
  • The host may be required to report anything where they feel an individual may be of risk to themselves or others.

 

Thank You for your Co-operation.
