Description

Grampian 50+ Network is a network of Older People’s Walking Groups from across Grampian. Established in 1998, it currently has 55 member groups with total of 1300 members from Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire & Moray. The Network offers support and training as well as running large events, and producing a newsletter “AGEnda” three times a year. The Network is a registered charity and is run totally by a committee of older volunteers with help from members when running events like our Spring or Autumn Walks, Spring Fling or Ramblers’ Rendezvous. For information about these, we have a website www.grampian50plusnetwork.com and members only Facebook Page.

We are now looking for a volunteer who has the skills and interest in developing and maintaining our website. This would include bringing the site up to date, liaising with the committee for up to date information to be added as well as attracting more older people to join our walking groups.

A fantastic opportunity to help. All help makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.
