    Successful Positive Ageing Day

    Positive Ageing day was a great success this year again, we had 40+ stand-holders invited to Newry Sports centre, an afternoon dance, turn up and try sessions, demonstrations, therapies, health and hearing checks, ICT interactive zone for people to learn about using smart phones or tablets, fashion show, information and advice targeted at older people and exercise to promote physical health.  Over 250 Older people attended.

    Organising Committee includes Volunteer Now, SHSCT, U3A, NMSCC and individual older people that want to make a difference within the event.

    Well done all!
