Contributed by editor on May 10, 2017 - 01:45 PM

 

A Later Life Celebration Event is being held in Pencester Gardens in Dover on Thursday 11 May from 10am to 3pm.

 



The event is being organised by Dover District Council, supported by the Kent Police and Crime Commissioner, and aims to help people of all ages celebrate and love later life.

The event will launch the new ‘Later Life Address Book’, and will feature a range of live entertainment, refreshments, taster sessions, and a range of information on local activities and services.



The event will include:

Musical entertainment - including performances from the P&O Choir, The Moments and Chantilly Lace

Later life activities - including walking football, poem reading, yoga, a cooking exhibition, and a range of information from Your Leisure

Vintage vehicles – a range of vintage vehicles will be on display from the Friends of East Kent Buses and the Dover Transport Museum

Vintage game stalls – including Hook The Duck, Bat The Rat, and Coconut Shy stalls, and many more.

The event marks the launch of the Later Life Address Book. This is a vintage-style address book, designed to be easy to read, containing details of local businesses and services that have come forward as Dementia Friends, and attended special training sessions. The project has been run by DDC working with Dementia Friends, part of the Alzheimer’s Society.

Following the launch, the Later Life Address Book will be available at a range of locations, including DDC offices and Age Concern centres in the district.

As part of our Later Life project, DDC’s Community Services team has been working hard to make the district more dementia friendly. DDC has been officially recognised by Dementia Friendly Kent as a ‘working to become dementia friendly’ organisation.
