Through Active Ageing, older people are getting together in local neighbourhoods to take part in exercise, learn new things or join in arts and cultural activities.

Bolton Council is working in partnership with Age Concern Bolton and NHS Bolton to promote Active Ageing sessions ranging from gentle exercises and T’ai Chi to craft sessions, modern art and line dancing. These are all activities that local senior citizens have expressed interest in and are proving very popular. An informal, relaxed approach is taken and everyone aged over 50 is welcome.

Where do activities take place?

There’s an exciting programme of Active Ageing activities at the Thicketford Centre, Tonge Moor, with a growing number of sessions in other venues. Search for activities in your local area on the Active Bolton web page, which you will find on the Links tab on this page.

Also under the Links tab, you will find Age UK Bolton's website which explain more about the charity's services and activities and gives contact for Service Co-ordinators for different areas of Bolton.
