We Are Ageing Better: November events

We Are Ageing Better is a project we deliver in St Pancras and Somers Town with Ageing Better in Camden. The project brings people together to share skills and experiences, and create change in the community. It is open to everyone over 60 in St Pancras and Somers Town.

This month, there are plenty of trips, events and activities to get involved in including a cultural food day, visit to the Wellcome Collection and weekly chair exercise classes.

To book on, please contact Jess: You can also get in touch with Jess to be added to the mailing list or the Whatsapp group.
