‘Now I’m Retiring’ is aimed at anyone who is about to retire or new to retirement. The event will feature a marketplace of clubs, volunteering opportunities and hobbies to inspire you with ideas on how to fill your time. Come along and find out about all of the exciting and rewarding opportunities that are available and discover more about social and volunteering activities that are on offer in South Gloucestershire.

There are a large number of organisations taking part in the event including Well Aware, Walking to Health, Merlin Housing, Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme and Age UK South Gloucestershire. There will be a host of information on offer and representatives from these organisations will be available for visitors to chat to.

Sue Jaques, Community Engagement Officer with South Gloucestershire Council, said: “Many people find it difficult to adjust when full time employment comes to an end and they have extra time on their hands. We hope that this event will inform people of the wide range of activities that are available in South Gloucestershire.

“Retirement is a fantastic time of life and there are lots of rewarding ways people can make use of their experience and free time, from learning new skills to providing company for some of our lonely older residents.”

The event runs from 11am to 2pm on Saturday 5 October at the Casson Centre, Rodway Road, Patchway.
