Don’t miss this year’s Full of Life Fair and Full of Life Fund community events!

10 October 2023

There are only a few days to go until this year’s Full of Life Fair on Friday 13 October, the annual extravaganza for older residents and carers held at Twickenham RFU Stadium.

The all-day, free event aims to celebrate the immense contributions older residents and carers make to the borough, as well as active, healthy, independent lifestyles and connecting with the many local services and activities in Richmond upon Thames that support this.

Additionally, residents can try out a wide programme of fun activities across the borough throughout the entire month of October, hosted by local groups and organisations and supported by the Full of Life Fund.

Cllr Piers Allen, Lead Member for Adult Social Care and Public Health and Chair of the Richmond Health and Wellbeing Board, said:

“Full of Life is a fantastic opportunity to find out about services and activities available locally, as well as a great chance to try out a new activity or two on the day, like tango or line dancing, gentle mind-body strengthening routines, chair yoga, table tennis – we’ve got something for everyone!

We will also have valuable clinical services being offered, such as flu and COVID-19 seasonal vaccines for those eligible, and other things like blood pressure checks and musculoskeletal health advice. Local professionals will also be on hand to provide one-to-one support for how you can use everyday technology live more actively and independently, as well as discuss important topics like avoiding cyber scams.

I encourage anyone interested in attending to RSVP as soon as possible. For those unable to attend the full fair – remember, there is still a full programme of activities across our communities happening throughout the month, supported by the Full of Life Fund!

Over 60 stallholders representing local health, care and community services, community and voluntary organisations, businesses and national charities will be on show, alongside a full schedule of fun activity taster sessions to support physical and mental health, and an all-day café with free light refreshments.
