Our Older People's Day was a success with plenty of older people joining us at Hawtonville Community Centre.
There were several stands offering help and advice on a wealth of subjects such as energy, housing, the internet and exercise. We also had our sports development team on standby to offer body MOTs.
In the main room there was plenty of free tea and coffee to go around and also lots of cakes on offer. These were all homemade by staff at Newark and Sherwood District Council and donated for the event.
The theme was 'try something different' and there certainly was a lot on offer! There was a drumming workshop, tap dance lesson and a seated exercise class for people to have a go at. There was also the chance to make a clay poppy which will make up part of a display to commemorate local lives lost in WWI.
Jill Cockayne, Energy and Home Support Worker, said: "Despite the short time we had to organise this event, the people that attended had an enjoyable time and found the workshops and information on offer of value."
