SUNDAY October 1 is the International Day for Older Persons, and the city of Elche are celebrating in style with a series of events taking place throughout the month of October.

The full programme got underway yesterday (Thursday 28th September) which featured a number of health-related activities in social centres across the city, such as blood pressure and glucose tests and advice on eating habits.  Today (Friday 29th) will be dedicated to first aid.

For the more active elderly people, there will be a Table Tennis competition on Friday October 6 and a Ballroom Dance competition on Saturday October 7 beginning at 6pm.

One of the highlights of the programme will be held on Saturday October 14 where 35 different couples celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversary will get together in the Centro de Congresos.
