As part of this year’s Ageing Well Festival (formerly known as the Brighton & Hove Older People’s Festival) we held a special event at Woodingdean Community Centre – this offered local people the chance to meet like-minded people, enjoy some refreshments together and to learn about what’s on in Woodingdean.
Here’s what Sue Sayers, our Ageing Well Project Manager and Participation Worker, had to say about the event:
Despite the dreadful weather (and if the weather is bad, it’s extra bad in Woodingdean!), we had a fair turnout for our social and information event for the over 50’s at Woodingdean Community Centre on Friday 11th October. We played Boccia and found out about library resources, Warm Homes, Stay Steady Exercises and reps were on hand for many of the activity groups that happen in Woodingdean – all on the theme of Ageing well in Woodingdean.
The response was – “can we have these events on a regular basis?”!
