told that there are many more people travelling to Europe and even beyond. There is so much more on offer in the sporting world, as well, including golf, boules, tennis, badminton, swimming, exercise classes - the list is endless - but for many of the aged now in their late 80's, 90's and even centenarians, these are not possible. Hence we must endeavour to include them in other less strenuous activities. They must not be excluded from society.


If we are being honest here in Jersey we must admit that we were not prepared for this ageing population bulge and we need to plan for a change in society to include older people who have given so much to this Island and now get so little in return.


At Windsor House, our centre in Val Plaisant, we provide many services including hairdressing, chiropody, computer classes, coffees, hot lunches, Arts and Crafts afternoons on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to help older people with eye and hand co-ordination while they are seated. On Tuesday we hold a social afternoon at St. Thomas' Church Hall with speakers, quizzes, entertainment, Bingo, a raffle, with tea, biscuits or cake and we even have minibuses and drivers to collect and return our members home.


At Christmas, Age Concern delivers hampers to older people which may be the only gift they receive. We are their extended family and we want to make sure that everyone has something extra during the festive season. Through visits like this we get to know them better and they get to know that we care.


Because we want to do more for our older generation we need larger premises and everyone can help us achieve this ambition by fund raising for us. Your help would be invaluable and much appreciated.


Together we can win! Fine things improve with age Experience and wisdom are wonderful qualities for golf


Having more time on your hand gives you more time to practice. There are numerous examples of golfers having become more successful later in life, which is rare in other sports.


The many benefits of playing golf are:


• You can take it up at any stage in your life • It combines walking, coordination, and stretching • It is a great way to meet up with friends or make new ones • Learning to play is an exciting challenge for the body and the mind • When traveling one discovers great golf courses in amazing locations


Learning to play or improving your game is very rewarding, and we will make sure that our teaching method is suited to the person that you are.

So I hope we will see you soon at the Driving range or on the course.
