We Are Ageing Better: June and July events

03/06/2021

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.

We Are Ageing Better have a jam-packed schedule of summer trips, events and weekly activities coming up! All indoor activities are limited to five people (and 15 people in the Basil Jellicoe hall) until 21 June. 

The Project Officer Jess is on annual leave from 31 May to 4 June, so bookings for all activities and trips will open when she returns on Monday 7 June. To book, please contact Jess by calling 0791 959 8375 / 0207 209 9333, emailing jess@weareageingbetter.org.uk or messaging Jess on We Are Ageing Better's Twitter. You can also get in touch with Jess to be added to the mailing list or the Whatsapp group.
