Silver Salisbury Programme 20th Sept to 13th Oct 2019

Local Area Boards (Salisbury, Southern Wiltshire and South West Wiltshire) have each contributed funding to the 2019 Silver Sunday programme of events.

The programme, which is geared towards helping older people access local activities and groups, was first piloted in Salisbury last year, but the hope this year is that it can begin to build more activities for villages from the Southern Wiltshire and South West Wiltshire areas.
