The Cheviot Centre in Wooler.

Co-ordinating4Age and Ageing Well have brought together a wealth of organisations and activities to tempt people to do something different this winter.

All kinds of activities will be available in the Cheviot Centre in Wooler, on October 26, from 10am to 2pm.

If you’d like to try a taster walking to heath walk or have your blood pressure checked, try gardening with the U3A or have a chat with the Wooler Knit and Natter Group, then it’s all here.

The Royal British Legion will be on hand, as will the CAB, to offer advice. And if you have wondered what to do with all the surplus fruit around in the autumn, go along and see what can be done with it.

From support for grandparents providing child care to those with health concerns themselves, there will be people to help and advise.

Transport, alternative therapies, energy saving tools and the Men in Sheds project will also be represented.

Jane Pannell, chairman of Co-ordinating4Age, said: “We’re grateful to Ageing Well for helping out on this vital session in Glendale.

“All we need now is for people to pop along and see what’s on offer.

“Don’t let those short days and long nights stop you from having fun and staying well this winter – we’d love to see you.”

There’s a free lunch kindly provided by Roddam WI and a free bag of goodies, including free smart meters, and information for the first 30 people. Just pop along on the day.
