Over-55s in Steeton prove they are young at heart
9:00am Monday 21st October 2013 in News
Steeton’s new NOTHY! group for over-55s attracted nine people to its launch event.
But organisers expect many more when the monthly sessions switch from Thursdays to Tuesdays.
Creative Solutions started its new NOTHY! – which stands for Not Over The Hill Yet! – group at Steeton’s Community Hub.
Session leader Paul Handley said the first meeting inadvertently clashed with the weekly over-50s group at the nearby church.
He said: “I went over to the church last week and promised I wouldn’t do the same date in future.
“A few of them said they’d like to come along to the NOTHY!”
Mr Handley said the intention was that members would choose what activities they would like to do.
He said: “They had a few good ideas – guest speakers, games and a book swap.”
NOTHY! will meet on the second Tuesday of each month, beginning on November 12, from 2pm to 4pm. Admission will be £1.
