Ageing Well Festival (Previously Older People’s Day) 2020

As you all have been made aware on 25 June 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was decided that no physical events (such as coach trips, film shows or afternoon tea dances etc) sadly could not form part of what we all knew as “Older People’s Day” celebrations this year.

Instead, East Sussex County Council have worked extremely hard with others, including the Senior’s Forums, to produce a very full and varied programme of on-line events only this year.  The booklet entitled “Ageing Well in East Sussex” has now been published and can be found at the following link:

(Just click on the underlined words above to see the brochure).

You will be pleased to see that your own Forum has thought up an on-line event, which of course is totally free to enter!  It is called:


The details are in the attached booklet, at page 17 –  under the heading “Let’s Get Creative”  Just submit your poems/limericks etc – comical, reflective, sad – anything.  Just remember to include your name, and the poet’s name (if that is different to yours) and send them by email  to:  Please put the heading “Poets’ Corner” in your email.  This event starts on Tuesday 1 September 2020 and will run through until 31 October 2020.  We look forward to reading pages and pages of your poems!  Just “give it a go”!!  We look forward to hours of reading your contributions!  All poems will be published on the Meridian Mature Citizens Forum’s website.
