Dover District Council is welcoming the success of the Later Life Celebration event held in Pencester Gardens on Thursday, (11 May), which saw the launch of the new Later Life Address Book,  now available across the district.



The event saw hundreds of visitors enjoying a range of activities and attractions, and finding out about a wide range of information on local services.

The event was organised by Dover District Council, and supported by the Kent Police and Crime Commissioner, Matthew Scott, who attended the day.

Features included: musical entertainment, including performances from the P&O Choir, The Moments and Chantilly Lace; later life activities, including walking football and yoga; vintage vehicles on display from the Friends of East Kent Buses and the Dover Transport Museum; and vintage game stalls, including Hook The Duck, Bat The Rat, and Coconut Shy stalls.

The event marked 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 Later Life Address Book is available at DDC offices and Age Concern centres in the district.
