Youth bus for older people

The over 50s in Neath Port Talbot are being given the chance to become young people again by catching the Rolling Zone Mobile Youth Centre bus.

Throughout the morning of Thursday 1st October, to celebrate National Older People's Day the Older Persons' Council will be giving out information to local people who are over the age of 50.

In a unique partnership the Local Authority Youth Service will be lending them their Rolling Zone Mobile Youth Centre which will be placed near Morrisons car park in Neath.

Leader of Neath Port Talbot Council Ali Thomas said: "We now have more people over the age of 50 than young people living in the county borough, it is therefore more important than ever to make sure that people have the information they need to make sure that they live a long, healthy and independent life.

"We are grateful to both Morrisons and the Youth Service for enabling us to have this exciting venue to welcome older people into so that they can have a chat and gather information on topics which are important to them.

"Look out for the zebra painted vehicle in Morrisons' car park and call in for a chat."
