A lot to celebrate in Seniors Week

HELLO readers,

It's on again, the week when we shine a light on our own demographic, the people we are, the things we love to do, together with new and existing services, products and technologies available to us through business and government agencies.

In this special edition dedicated to Seniors Week, we have contacted as many people as possible to create and present a calendar of events to connect you with what's happening in your local area and further afield.

Take your time and you may well discover a new pursuit. Check through our website and you will find there's a whole world of people out there waiting for you with an open invitation. Sometimes we build on the groups, activities and friends we already have, at other times we yearn to discover new areas of life. This special week can be a time for friendly get-togethers or a time to explore new pursuits.

Have you ever thought of yourself as an artist, craftsperson or perhaps a volunteer for a worthy cause. Perhaps you are thinking of a new activity, but not sure whether it's tai chi, golf or the gym? Perhaps you would just like to join up with some like-minded people? Whatever you like to do, you will find plenty of inspiration in through these pages.

While Seniors Week is for all of us, what we aim to do respect and express is each person's individuality. We are the same, but we are different and this week gives us all the opportunity to share the big picture of our generation.

As always we would love to hear your stories, to see your pictures and I hope this edition adds to one aspect of your life.

Happy Seniors Week.
