Saturday 30 September is International Day of Older Persons, and the theme for this year is about the importance of an age-friendly community.
An age-friendly community is one that ensures we all have a place in society as we age, where we are respectful and included, and are able to live a good life as we age.
To celebrate, local community groups are coming together with Southwark Council to host a celebration and information sharing event at Peckham Square on Saturday 30 September from 12-4pm.
This free event will include:
- Music, singing and dancing performances by local residents and community groups
- An open mic
- Information stalls to find out more about community groups, clubs and services
- Free health checks and advice from health professionals (from 1pm)
- Photos and films from Southwark’s past and present
All members of the public are welcome to attend and no tickets are required.
