Just because we get older, doesn’t mean that we want to stop socialising. In Hertfordshire, there are plenty of opportunities for older people to socialise with each other and enjoy a day out with friends or family.
Throughout Hertfordshire, there are many accessible days out, cultural attractions and clubs for older people to join. Lunch clubs are one of the most popular activities for older people to get to know each other, while enjoying a hot, freshly-cooked meal.
The sister museum of the Natural History Museum in South Kensington, the Museum at Tring is one of Hertfordshire’s most impressive museums. It hosts one of the finest zoology collections in the UK, and is fully accessible for people with limited mobility.
Some older people cannot get out as much as they would like to because they no longer drive and may find using public transport difficult. Fortunately, Hertfordshire has an excellent range of community transport services. Community transport schemes allow older people to be picked up from their home and taken to where they need to go, often for a minimal fee.
