Step Into Spring and age well
25 Mar 2019
The events 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. They will also be able to find out more about groups, volunteering opportunities and activities that are available in their neighbourhood.
Local and voluntary organisations, housing associations and leisure and health services will all be present to offer helpful advice and support.
The drop-in events will run in the following locations:
- Tuesday 2nd April, 10am-2pm, Haltwhistle Community Centre, NE49 9AH
- Friday 12th April, 10am-1pm, Wentworth Leisure Centre, Hexham NE46 3PD
- Wednesday 1st May, 10am-2pm, Morpeth Town Hall, Market Place NE61 1LZ
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.”
The events are organised by Ageing Well Northumberland which 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.
