International Older Person's Day
Today (1st October) marks UK & UN Older Persons Day ~ a day of celebration of older adults and awareness of the issues affecting the lives of our senior citizens.
To mark Older Persons Day in the UK, the Senior Citizen Liaison Team (SCLT) is pleased to launch the very latest edition of their award-winning Senior Siren Magazine to the public.
The Senior Siren features articles on crime prevention, home & personal safety as well as many interesting features on lifestyles and independence.
The latest edition features a Senior Spotlight interview with Lord Tom King, Baron of Bridgwater and highly experienced, former Cabinet Minister.
As part of the activities arranged for Older Persons Day in Somerset (UK), Ash Jones has been visiting members of the senior community to give talks on doorstep crime and cyber-safety, as well as distributing copies of the latest Senior Siren magazine. One of his stops was the weekly meeting of the popular U3A Art Group in Berrow Community Centre. He said, “It is great to join our older adults as they enjoy the activities of the U3A, there is clearly some great talent in this group. I hope that my brief chat, coupled with the information on the Senior Siren, will enhance the safety of this vibrant group”
