Older People's Day 2016

Saturday October 1st was officially Older People’s Day 2016 – an International Day created to recognise and celebrate the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society.

As in 2015, we partnered with seniors’ forums, the voluntary sector, community groups and other statutory organisations to put together and support a programme of events to mark Older People’s Day. Across East Sussex, events took place throughout September and October, providing a wide variety of fun activities and information.

You can view the 2016 events programme through the link below.

For further information, please contact Kate Davies, Chair of East Sussex Seniors’ Association (ESSA), on 01273 516207

Many of the events in the 2016 programme were organised by the seniors’ forums in Meridian, Wealden, Hastings, Eastbourne, Rother, Lewes District, Seaford, and Hastings Older People’s Ethnic Group (HOPE-G).
