International Older Persons Day

As part of International Older Persons Day, Healthwatch Central Bedfordshire, in partnership with Central Bedfordshire Council, Aragon Housing Association, Circle MSK and Flitwick Town Council will be hosting a Full of Life Festival for Older People to celebrate the positive contributions that older people make to society.

Date: Friday 6th October 2017

Time: 10.00am to 2.30pm

Venue: The Rufus Centre, Steppingley Road, Flitwick, MK45 1AH

With activities intended to help older residents remain ‘Full of Life’, this year’s theme, ‘Stepping into the future’, is about enabling and expanding the contributions of older people, in their families, communities and societies at large. Activities at this year’s event will include music, keep fit exercises, a quiz and free refreshments, all lined up to entertain visitors of all ages.

As well as being a fun and social event, this will be an opportunity for older people to get information about health, social care and housing services and how to access them. There will be exhibitors from many statutory and voluntary organisations and local groups offering advice and information about local services for older people such as social care, health, housing, leisure activities, holistic services and much more. There will also be a series of craft stands with items for sale, and a mystery celebrity at the event.
