Summer roadshow will promote staying active, connected and well

A ‘Shades of Summer’ roadshow next week is set to help elderly people to stay active and connected in their communities.

The drop-in event at Breamish Hall in Powburn is on 6th August and will run from 1.30pm to 3.30pm, with refreshments provided.

Those attending will be able to visit a range of stalls and gain advice on staying active, involved and well, local activities and volunteering opportunities that are happening in the area.

Local and voluntary organisations, housing associations and leisure and health services are all expected to be present to offer helpful advice and support.

The event will be a great opportunity for people to get together over a cuppa for a chat and to find out more about staying active, involved and well. 

Cllr Veronica Jones, cabinet member for adult health and wellbeing said: “We want people to stay healthy as they grow older. By supporting people to have an active and healthy lifestyle we can help them achieve this.”

This event is co-ordinated locally by members of the Warm Hub at Powburn, and supported by Ageing Well Northumberland.

Ageing Well works to promote the health and wellbeing of older people within their local communities and ensure the county is a great place in which to grow old. It is delivered in partnership between Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Northumberland County Council.

Other Shades of Summer roadshows are planned - watch out for more details.
