FENLANDER: Join in series of special events celebrating age this October
COMMUNITY groups that work with older people are being offered a great chance to promote their activities by joining in Cambridgeshire Celebrates Age, a series of special events held throughout October each year.
This year’s programme is now being drawn up. To guarantee inclusion in it, groups must submit their entries to the organisers by June 7.
The theme for 2012 is “Active Ageing”. Existing groups already providing activities such as dancing, bowls and bingo could use the month to publicise and celebrate what they are already doing and to attract new members.
The month also provides a perfect platform for anyone planning to launch a new group.
Groups can use the month to adapt their regular activities to reflect the theme or introduce a special, one-off event. In the past these have included film shows, quizzes, music events, fashion shows and healthy eating cookery demonstrations.

This year participating organisations in Fenland can get free help through Mytime Active or the British Heart Foundation’s lifestyle coach to introduce special “taster sessions” into their regular meetings during October.
