Activities for the 50-plus set

EAST Renfrewshire council is currently running a festival aimed at the over 50s.

Called EngAGE, it aims to encourage people to take part in a variety of activities which are taking place all over East Ren.

Festival ambassador – and 50-something – River City actress Libby Arthur has already performed her show, The F Word, at Eastwood Park Theatre and enthused about the festival.

Libby said: “What a brilliant festival.

“We are celebrating being fabulous and fascinating, whilst getting to grips with our feeble and farcical moments that comes with our fifty plus years of life experience”.

Among the activities during the week will be classes in painting, drama, photography and yoga along with walking groups, afternoon tea and exhibitions.

EngAGE runs until May 18.
