Barnet Silver Week 2018
- Adult social care
We are delighted to announce Barnet will again be hosting Silver Week 1-7 October 2018. Check out the full list of Barnet activities and events in the Silver Week booklet.
Silver Sunday is an annual day of fun activities for older people across the UK, led by The Sir Simon Milton Foundation.
