Living Well Week

There are lots of fantastic services and groups available for people over the age of 50 to help them live will and enjoy life - both now and in the future. Making small changes in our lifestyle habits today to eat well, move more, sleep better, stress less and generally be more informed about how to stay healthy, allows us to have a positive impact on our future health and wellbeing.

However, it is not always easy to know where, or how, to access this myriad of different activities. This is where Living Well Week steps in. Providing you with a range of discounts, introductory offers, taster sessions, advice and free events, Living Well Week is an opportunity to sample some of the services available across the Borough that can help you to live well.

Living Well Week 2018 activities will be taking place from Monday 8 October to Friday 12 October, with the annual Silver Sunday event on Sunday 7 October.
