|29/09/2016 08:21 Silver Sunday Event|
West Lothian residents aged 65 years and over attended a free Silver Sunday event on 25 September at the Hilcroft Hotel in Whitburn. The successful event organised by Xcite Ageing Well “changing lifestyles project” was to mark the national Silver Sunday event this coming Sunday 2 October. Silver Sunday is an annual day of fun and free activities for older people across the UK led by The Sir Simon Milton Foundation.
Over 144 people attended the event which featured information stalls from Council Information Services, McMillan, Food train, Carers of West Lothian, Craigshill Good neighbour network, Alzheimer’s Scotland, Police, Fire authority, Handi Cabs and West Lothian 50+ Network. Xcite’s Ageing Well Coordinator, Avril Clerkson, delivered a seated exercise taster session before Rovin Productions performed a two hour Variety Show to entertain the group who thoroughly enjoyed the whole day!
The day was appreciated by all who were there, with many of highlighting the usefulness of the information from the stalls and how much they all enjoyed the afternoon.
“Nice afternoon out and very helpful to know the services available in West Lothian”
“Excellent afternoon, loved the seated exercise, so much fun with great information stalls and the entertainment was fabulous”
“Great Afternoon, Never seen so many happy people in one room”
Avril Clerkson, Xcite's Ageing Well Coordinator, who organised the day for West Lothian said : "The aim of Silver Sunday is to celebrate the value and knowledge older people contribute to our community whilst combating loneliness and isolation. It is a great opportunity to become more active, have fun, try new activities, socialise and meet new people. We would like to thank everyone for attending and special thanks to the organisations who provided stalls throughout the day. Also to thank Age Scotland and the Hilcroft Hotel for sponsoring the event. At Xcite we offer a great range of activities for this age group within our venues as well as within the local community, from Dancing to Walking Football. We hope that the event also raised awareness of the activities available.
