Throughout the past week the Celebrating Age Festival has been going on in Telford. The festival encourages older people to take part in activities and share the things they love with others.
The festival featured more than 70 activities including exercise classes, knitting, woodwork, dancing, art and drumming workshops.
Many of these activities are held all the year round and you can see what was on offer on the Celebrating Age Festival website.
For those looking for new opportunities to keep active and meet new people in old age its worth looking at what is on offer – there really is something for everyone.
