Full of life - Celebrate older people's day 2015

There is so much to enjoy and do for all ages in Poole, so why not join in…


UK Older People’s Day is on 1st October every year to coincide with the UN International Day of Older Persons. The main aim for the day is to be a celebration of the achievements and contributions that older people make to society and the economy. Older People’s Day supports the campaign to challenge negative attitudes and outdated stereotypes.

The day will be marked in Poole with events from the 21st of September.
