Southend Older People's Assembly (OPA) is again hosting its annual Active Ageing Community Information Day.

As with previous years the event will be held within the Southend Victoria Shopping Centre from 9.30 am to 2.00 pm. It will bring together voluntary organisations, service providers, local traders and others to provide residents with information and advice about services and activities. Residents and their family and friends can gain access to support and improve wellbeing and reduce isolation as well as celebrating the huge contribution over 55's make to society.

The central mall will again be utilised for entertainment- featuring a variety of local active groups and invited guests, plus we hope to use the concourse outside the main Victoria Centre entrance for an interactive display.

The OPA is a community group representing the voice of older people in Southend and our aim for this event is to provide an informative and enjoyable day that is open and free to all.

We do hope that you will want to join us.
