Silver Sunday


Silver Sunday

The Forum Barrow working in partnership with Age UK Barrow & District

Sunday 3 October 11am-3pm

Free events

Initially launched as a local campaign to tackle loneliness and isolation, Silver Sunday is now a national day where people of all generations can come together by hosting fun and free activities for older people. It is a day where older people can meet new people, visit new places, try new activities and connect with their local communities and the generations around them.

This is an ideal opportunity to make new friends and network with organisations in the Borough.
