A Message from Rachael Treacher, HOP Project Manager

I would personally like to thank everyone who attended the HOP network meeting at the Museum of Liverpool on 2 Oct; I was delighted to see so many people, and do hope you enjoyed the afternoon as much as I did.

A special thanks to FACT’s Digital Ambassadors for delivering a great session and to The League of Welldoers Ukulele Group who entertained so many of us throughout the day, as well as all the marketplace stallholders and the staff at the Museum of Liverpool for helping to run a fantastic event.

It was great to hear from Healthy Homes, Healthwatch and GoodGym about opportunities and services they have available for older people and to see so many people getting involved and having such fun with the Healthiness Liverpool ‘Active Bingo’ session!

Thank you also to our special guests Carol Rogers MBE, Councillor Sharon Connor, and Natalie Markham from Liverpool City Council who expressed their support of older people and of art and culture as a vehicle to enable older people to live well.

We also premiered the HOP film, a showcase of three of this year’s six HOP Pot-funded projects. The film was very well received – you can see it here (warning! It is wonderfully joyful and emotional). Extra-special thanks to HOP photographer and now videographer Pete Carr for making a beautiful film with such care and attention.

Once again, thank you for your participation in a really wonderful event. Have a great October and keep up the great work for older people in Merseyside!
