Chance to learn about activities for the elderly
10:24am Thursday 20th September 2012 in News
Older people are being given the chance to learn about activities, interest groups and advice available on their doorstep.
Keighley Elderly Initiative Group (KEIG) is staging a drop-in coffee morning at the Greggs cafe area, in the Airedale Shopping Centre, on Wednesday, October 3. The 9.30am to 11.30am event is being held as part of national Older People’s Week.
There will be information stalls from organisations including West Yorkshire Trading Standards and the fire service and groups such as Keighley Older People’s Association and Keighley and Ilkley Voluntary and Community Action.
And volunteers and staff from Keighley Healthy Living will be on hand to promote their projects.
KEIG chairman Ernie Lloyd said: “The aim of the event is to inform the over-50s about the numerous clubs, groups and support that’s out there for them.
“Whether someone wants information about volunteering or wants to take up a new hobby, or join a social group, this event will help to point them in the right direction.”
Any groups interested in having a stand at the event – or wanting information about KEIG – should contact Keighley Healthy Living manager Peter Clarke at 13 Scott Street or call (01535) 677177.
