Celebrate International Older People’s Day with us!

This Thursday (1st October) is International Older People’s Day and we’d love you to join us for a special free afternoon event at Meadowbank Sports Centre.

At Active Aging 50 Years and Beyond  you’ll get the chance to speak to people from:

Age Scotland

Citizens Advice Pension Wise

NHS Lothian Falls Prevention

Living it up

Care and repair

Changeworks Heat Heroes


And more. They’ll all be there to give you expert advice and tips on general health and wellbeing. You’ll also be able to pick up this year’s Get Up and Go brochure – your indispensable guide to what’s going on across Edinburgh for the young at heart.

On top of all this we promise toe-tapping and energetic demonstrations, plus we’ll be joining Councillor Lewis, Convenor of Culture and Sport, in celebrating our local heroes at  the annual Get Up and Go Awards ceremony.

And best of all… there will be a tea dance, tea, coffee and cakes from 2.30 – 4.00pm.

The fun starts at 12.30pm. For more information contact  ageingwell@edinburghleisure.co.uk

And if you can’t make it along on Thursday you can of course find all the Get Up and Go activities listed on Your Edinburgh.
