North City Library’s AgeFriendly group for over-55s, the Grand Day Out, celebrated in style at the Adactus BIG Film Premiere and Awards in December.

The group were nominated for a Breathe Investment Grant (BIG) award for their work in keeping older people in Harpurhey and Moston engaged and active in their community.

The event was a Red Carpet occasion with sparkling wine and canapes for the premiere viewing of a film made by local young people from the North West, with help from community filmmaking specialists ReelManchester.

Grand Day Out provides a weekly social group for people over 55 years where they can come along to North City Library on Monday afternoons. The group has regular trips out and take part in projects with Manchester Libraries such as the Echo Trace project.
