We Are Ageing Better is a project run by our members, local people aged over 60 who live in St Pancras and Somers Town. Anyone can sign up to be a member, which is free and open to all. At each meeting we make at least three decisions about how to move the project forward. In January we need to think about forthcoming trips out and plans for the year ahead.
