Enjoyment of life for the older person!

60S UP MOVEMENT is a body of senior members of the community made up of those who are active, usually no longer in full time employment, who meet in local branches to find new friends and activities.

One of the Movement's main objectives is to offer opportunities for members to maintain and expand their minds and bodies with social communication and educational and recreation activities.
