Bridgend’s Olympage Games are back!

Bridgend County Borough’s fourth, annual ‘Olympage Games’ event will take place on Wednesday 5th December from 9.30am to 11am at Bridgend Life Centre, in partnership with Halo Leisure.

The games are designed to develop age-friendly communities and recognise the health and wellbeing benefits of encouraging older people to move more often.

The event will also celebrate the launch of the new ‘Super-Agers’ programme, a project that aims to enhance the physical wellbeing of older adults in the Cwm Taf Morgannwg area through engagement in physical activity. It will also mark the official opening of the new ‘Bridgend Wellbeing Hub’.

The Olympage Games are organised by Bridgend County Borough Council’s, Social Services and Wellbeing department and supported by Sport Wales and health and social care students from Bridgend College. College students will support participants and the teams with the various activities throughout the morning.

The initiative aims to celebrate the ongoing work across the county borough, which aims to encourage older people to lead a healthier, more active life and gives them the opportunity to socialise with people of all generations.

The ‘Super-Agers’ project has been awarded funding from the Healthy and Active Fund (funded by Sport Wales, Welsh Government and Public Health Wales).

If you are interested in coming along or supporting the event, please contact Jane Thomas, Operations Manager of Wellbeing, on 01656 815215 or email jane.thomas@bridgend.gov.uk
