Posted on Tuesday 28th June 2011 at 8:24 am by SH (Editor)

South Gloucestershire Council’s Celebrating Age Festival draws to a close this week but there is still time for over 50s to take part in a free ‘good health day’ on Thursday 30th June.

The event, aimed at people who are interested in maintaining good health and keeping active, is being held at Yate library between 11am and 3pm.

On offer will be information from more than 30 organisations and health professionals.

You can have a free blood pressure check, get information about the council’s handy van service for minor repairs to your property, find out about our programme of walks in your area and for older people who find it difficult to cut their toe nails, you can get them done for free if you turn up at the library on June 30th. Free eye screening is also available.

Celebrating Age aims to raise awareness amongst older people of the wealth of interesting and stimulating activities that are available to them, from Tai Chi to IT, not to mention song, dance, art, books, motorbikes, conversation, local history, days out and much more.

The festival closes on Friday 1st July with a free finale event at The Folk Centre in Filton.
