Positive Aging Week: 26th September to 4th October
Positive Ageing Week is a festival which highlights the positive aspects of ageing and celebrates the contribution older people have made and continue to make to their communities.
The central aim of Positive Ageing Week is to dispel the many negative perceptions that surround ageing and to transform attitudes towards ageing and older people. We need to celebrate the fact that we are living longer, that ageing is not a burden but an opportunity.
“Walk and Talk”.
A Walking Tour of the Mall, Castlebar, in conjunction with Positive Aging Week, will take place exploring its history with local historian Brian Hoban on Sunday September 28th in conjunction with Positive Aging Week.
Meet at The Courthouse, The Mall, Castlebar at 2.00pm.
Tour will take place at a nice relaxed pace (fully wheelchair accessible) and will suit all levels of mobility. Duration of tour will be 1 hour approx.
Event is free of charge. All welcome and you are encouraged to bring a friend. For further details of events please contact Brian at 087-9234504
