An initiative that really is ageing well

The Morpeth Herald this week has the story of how Councillor Veronica Jones's intitiative on behalf of  Northumberland County Council for the elderly - the "Ageing Well programme" was recently given a ‘highly commended’ accolade in the Local Government Association Awards.
The project promotes the health and well-being of pensioners within their local communities by bringing them and local organisations together. Fuller details here:
