Active ageing event promoted importance of keeping active and healthy

19 June 2012

Old couple dancingCheshire West and Chester Councillors supported an event to promote keeping active and healthy in later life.

The Active Ageing Event held at St Mary’s Church Hall, Handbridge, proved very popular and a large number of local residents came along to find out more about the subject.

The event was part-funded by the member budgets of Councillors Razia Daniels and Neil Sullivan.

Councillor Daniels said: “There was an impressive variety of information and activities on offer including Indian head massages, cookery demonstrations and advice on trips and falls. I’m so pleased because several residents commented on how useful the event was for them.”

Councillor Sullivan said: “I am very grateful to our partners in the Chester Healthy Living Centre, Vision Support, Age UK, and Cheshire Fire and Rescue for coming along and supporting this event.”
