Older People’s Day 2018
Oct 1 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

READING is celebrating National and the United Nations Older People’s Day on Monday 1st October 2018 with a fun-filled day at Broad Street Mall (10 am – 3 pm)

The annual free event celebrates the contribution of older people to our communities. The festivities kick off at 10 am with a welcome from the Mayor of Reading, Councillor Debs Edwards.

This will be followed by a range of interactive activities throughout the day including  singing and dancing, choirs, Tai Chi, art and craft workshop, and acting and writing workshops.

There will also be information and advice available from around 40 local organisations.

The focus of this year’s day is ‘bringing people together’ and connecting people from  diverse cultures and background to other communities and to local services.

The event will be an opportunity for older people, those reaching retirement age and those with concerns about older parents and neighbours, to find out about activities and opportunities that can keep you live well and connect to your community.

The Primary Care Commissioning Committee (PCCC) is responsible for making decisions about GP and other primary care services in Reading (and Wokingham and West Berkshire). It is part of the Berkshire West Clinical Commissioning Group and holds its meetings in public every three months.

Agendas are published five working days before each meeting. Submit questions to the PCCC by 5pm, two days before the meeting, by phoning 0118 982 2958 or emailing bwccg.enquiries@nhs.net.
