New manners

Tue, 01/10/2013 - 15:54 - Charmian Boyd

 

New manners needed  - a suggestion at UK Older People’s Day celebration today 1st October.  While celebrating with coffee and cakes local Ealing residents told wonderful stories of times past.  Conversation encompassing scams and technology, led to a discussion on manners:  there were some strong voices emphasizing the importance of manners in a civilized society!  So one new manner we need to adopt – don’t walk down the street texting unaware of who you are bumping into – older people aren’t always able to do a quick side step, despite being trained dancers and more!

 

The main aim for UK Older people’s day is to be a national celebration of the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society and to the economy. Certainly our celebration reminded me to be proud of our senior members of society.

Thanks to all who came and enjoyed the day.
