Ageless Thanet: Free wellbeing activities on offer for isle’s over 50s

Art is one of the activities on offer through Ageless Thanet

Ageless Thanet is delighted to announce the next group of Wellbeing activities will be starting shortly. The 8-week, free activities are available to anyone over the age of 50 who is currently living in Thanet and would like to improve their mental or physical health or feel less lonely.

One person who has enjoyed attending an Ageless Thanet Wellbeing activity is Pat who moved to Thanet in 2014 leaving behind her friends in London.

Pat said:I’d been in Thanet on my own for 18 months when I got to the point of feeling that I needed to do something to change my situation. Since going along to the Ageless Thanet 50+ Festival where I found out about the art activity I haven’t looked back. I thoroughly enjoyed the art sessions at King Street Gallery and I’ve made some wonderful life-long friends through going along.”

Through going to an Ageless Thanet art activity, Pat has now become an established artist, having sold many of her paintings.

To date Ageless Thanet has run a huge range of different activities, including burlesque, woodwork, Tai Chi, swimming, Spanish, creative writing and photography. The activities run in different locations around Thanet, in easily accessible venues. Some of the new activities that will be starting in August are:

  • Art
