Swap skills with other generations at Devizes Corn Exchange
5:00pm Sunday 29th September 2013 in Latest News
People can swap skills at an event to celebrate Older People’s Day at Devizes Corn Exchange on Wednesday, October 2.
The day will feature a cooking demonstration by Devizes chef Peter Vaughan and a chance to have a go at zumba, bagatelle, new age kurling, tai chi and various craft activities.
There will also be an opportunity for some IT taster sessions for those wanting to learn how to use the internet.
The event, organised by Carer Support Wiltshire and funded by The People’s Health Lottery, will also try to find hidden carers in the community who might be giving support to a family member or friend.
Debbie Martindale, events co-ordinator at Carer Support Wiltshire, said: “Everyone has a parent, grandparent, colleague or friend who they can learn from so we want to celebrate later life through this event.
“This year’s Older People’s Day is all about bringing older and young people together to learn from one another and mark the huge contribution older people make to our communities.”
Members of Devizes School sixth form will be there representing the younger generation and it is hoped that older people will come along to join in on the day.
The event will run from noon to 3pm and is free to attend with refreshments available.
