Silver Sunday takes place on 2 October 2016.

Silver Sunday is the national day for older people to try something new and meet new people. It’s aimed at people aged 65 and over who may feel isolated or lonely.

If you’re aged 65 or over, or know someone who is, take a look at the events and activities on Sunday 2 October as they go online.

Some events will be specific to Hammersmith & Fulham residents, and others are also open to residents of Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster.

Silver Sunday is supported by Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London.

It is so important that older people feel included in London’s communities. That is why I support Silver Sunday and hope that you all have a wonderful time celebrating the valuable contributions that older people make. These contributions span not just London but up and down the UK. In a city as large as London there is no need for older people to ever feel lonely or isolated but sadly some do. As Mayor, I want to make sure that everyone is engaged and active in their community – young or older.”
