The Vintage Village Games sessions are being organised by South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils as part of their GO Active Gold initiative which helps people aged 60 and over live more active lifestyles by offering physical activities to those in rural areas.

Cllr Jane Murphy, Deputy Leader at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: “The Vintage Village Games will bring some favourite indoor activities to people in the heart of our rural communities and is another great example of how GO Active Gold is helping our older residents lead more active lifestyles.”

Cllr Charlotte Dickson, Cabinet Member for Leisure at Vale of White Horse District Council, said: “These sessions will give people over the age of 60 with a great chance to take part in friendly team competitions and meet others in their area, providing a much needed winter boost for many across the southern Oxfordshire community.”
