living well seminarA Retirement Seminar


10/11th September 2015


St Peter’s Presbyterian Church

7 Harrison Road


Retirement is a time of…

change, transition, and adjustment to new rhythms of life. Decisions have to be made about how we will spend our time and money, where we will live, what activities we will pursue. Some of us have family and medical issues to consider. And as we step away from our working life we often feel unsure about how to adapt to our new circumstances and where to find the advice and help we need.

So if you are 65 and over and are facing perplexing questions about living your later years to the full, then this seminar is for you! We will be covering important topics and leading specialists will be helping us to explore the challenging issues that retirement presents. We will also inspire you to think about ways in which you can contribute to the well-being of the wider community in your retirement years.

The seminar runs over two days to give sufficient time to cover all the topics, so plan to be present both days.
