Activities for

older people in

Central North Oxford

2015 Edition

Supported by St Margaret’s Institute

and St Margaret’s Church

Activities for older people

in Central North Oxford

2015 edition

My name is Tricia Brant and I’m your local Community

Development Worker for older people. I work for Age UK

Oxfordshire in partnership with St Margaret’s

Institute Community Centre and St Margaret’s Church.

My goal is to ensure that older people, in particular those

more isolated and vulnerable, have the information, opportunities and support needed to stay informed, involved and in touch with the wider community.

This booklet contains information about the wide range of activities and support currently available for older people living in the Central North Oxford area. There are also some brand new opportunities that have been set up or are being planned, we have listed these on the page opposite.

We also have opportunities for volunteers of all ages to help with our activities, including people who are willing to drive a minibus for the local community transport.

If you have any questions about activities in this booklet, would benefit from support, information or advice about issues facing older people, or if you know of someone who would, then please get in touch.
