Celebrating Older People's Day 2018

OPD 2018 logo web

Once again, in 2018, we celebrated Older People’s Day across East Sussex, with events held throughout September and October.

2018 was the 11th year that we marked and recognised publicly the achievements and contributions that older people make to society. As in previous years, a wide variety of events were organised and hosted by older volunteers.

All event organisers enjoyed a successful time. There were 63 Facebook and Twitter posts on OPD – the most ever – and 15,000 copies of the events booklet were issued. Last year’s events programme is available here:
