AGE UK Cheshire is celebrating Older People’s Day with an invite to try something new at Castle Community Centre on Tuesday, October 2.
Between 1pm and 3.30pm resident tutor Doug will offer taster sessions in Yoga and Tai Chi, there will be a singalong with Roy Clinging and Cheshire Dance will perform with their Mature Movers Group.
In the computer suite, Age UK Cheshire’s volunteers will offer interactive computer and tablet demonstrations with advice on buying the right equipment and setting up your device.
Social Activities Officer Caroline Condliffe hopes to showcase the ever-increasing range of facilities since the site’s re-opening last October.
“We wanted to celebrate Older People’s Day by inviting people to come and have a look at what’s going on at Castle Community Centre,” she explained.
“It’s more than a year since it was re-opened and we’re very proud of the fact that we now offer such a range of activities to suit all interests – which is so important for older people, for both physical and mental well-being.
“The launch of the café, which will also take place on October 2, will help to create even more of a social atmosphere.”
To coincide with Age UK Cheshire’s 30th anniversary, which also takes place in October, there will be a special tree planting ceremony with MP Graham Evans, at 3.15pm.
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service, Wulvern Housing and Vision Support will also be on hand at the Community Centre on Barbers Lane to offer advice, support and answer any queries.
