101 Ways to Enjoy Getting Older at The Storyhouse in Chester

Gifford Lea host celebrity panel discussion with Gloria Hunniford at The Storyhouse in Chester.

Over 100 people from Chester and further afield turned up to take part in a lively panel discussion with TV GP, Dr Dawn Harper (Embarrassing Bodies, This Morning and author of ‘Live Well to 101’) and Rebecca Parker from Inspired Villages, chaired by veteran TV presenter, Gloria Hunniford.

The panel covered various topics including; the health benefits of a happy later life, the importance of community and how to keep our brains active in later life. Questions were then extended to the audience where several participants enjoyed an energetic discussion with Gloria, Dawn and Rebecca. 

The topic of health and happiness in later life is something extremely important to us at Inspired Villages and the response to our ‘101 ways to enjoy retirement’ campaign has been overwhelming. With the help and support of Gloria and Dawn, we are keen to spread the word and keep the conversation going with as many people as possible. This is why we will continue taking the ‘101 event’ on a roadtrip around the UK this year, so watch this space!

Before the discussion, the audience was encouraged to submit their own top tips for ‘ways to enjoy getting older’. The results can be found on our very own ‘101 Ways’ website:

Stay tuned for our '101 Ways' roadtrip coming very soon!
