What's happening in March?

National Intergenerational Week is all about celebrating those moments and places where different age groups come together for shared benefit.  Join us on #IntergenerationalWeek as we say no to the age gap.  It's a good moment to pop round to a neighbour's house for a cuppa and a chat, you could talk about getting together for a Big Lunch, or you could organise a memory walk!
