The Positive Ageing Celebration Day had been jointly organised, financially supported and supported in kind by the Southern Health and Social Care Trust, Newry and Mourne District Council, Newry and Mourne Senior Citizen’s Consortium, Volunteer Now, Newry University of the Third Age, and the and Department of Social Development and Newry Neighbourhood Renewal Health Programme.

The focus of this Positive Ageing Celebration Day was to make it a festival which celebrated and promoted the positive aspects of growing old and to assist older people to make connections in their local communities. It also highlighted the many positive contributions older people make to our community.

Many people from the local community were able to visit the Bayview Contracts stand to find out the great services we have on offer and the grants available. The day was a great success, Bayview Contracts would like to thank the Newry and Mourne Senior Citizens Consortium for the invitation.
