GOLD- Growing Old Living Dangerously
There are many reasons why staying fit and active as you age is important. There is also numerous studies published about the importance of trying new things and staying connected in your community as you age.The Growing Old and Living Dangerously (GOLD) programme has been brought back to life in Upper Hutt by Council’s Activation team. The GOLD Programme has been produced to enable and encourage local over 50’s residents to participate in fun social activities, whilst getting physically active.
GOLD is a series of monthly events which enables mature residents to partake in activities they’ve never tried or perhaps even contemplated before such as kayaking, rock climbing, archery, ten pin bowling, snorkelling and circus acts. Each day out costs between $30 – $60 and includes two activities, lunch and transport. The programmes run from January to June and activities are located in Upper Hutt and around the region.
