Positive Ageing Month 2021

All activities are free

Throughout October, Positive Ageing Month will celebrate the contribution that Mid Ulster’s older citizens make to their local communities. With a mix of events to enable older people to connect both virtually through online events and physically where possible within COVID-19 guidelines taking place, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. 

The programme starts on International Day of Older Persons, Friday 1 October with an online Age-Friendly convention. Mid Ulster based activities include a free series of sessions held by the Council’s Age Friendly Co-ordinator on falls awareness and prevention and Chatty Walks with the Council’s Live Active NI Recreation Officer at Clonoe Community Centre, Mid Ulster Sports Arena and Polepatrick in Magherafelt, as well as Better Connected Fitness sessions online and in Dungannon Leisure Centre. 

A wide range of free online sessions are also available to attend, covering topics such as cyber safety, online privacy and security, eat well and cookery demos, health workshops including dementia and Bowel Cancer awareness, money and energy saving advice and virtual sing-a-longs and reminiscence sessions.
