The Ageing Well Festival is always a fun and well-attended event – and, as ever, they need plenty of volunteers to ensure it’s a huge success.

If you’d like to  volunteer in this year’s festival , hust fill out the following Google Form, as they can then pencil you in somewhere that fits both your needs and interests, as well as their requirements.

They need  volunteers to commit to minimum 3 hour sessions if possible (if you can’t do as many as 3 hours please just let them know). We will recompense £10 – cash given on the day. Hot drinks and biscuits freely available.

Bob Jope  Healthwatch Torbay


Apart from five years studying in Oxford I’ve lived most of my life in London where for many years I was Head of English in a prestigious girls’ school, but since taking early retirement and heading West to be nearer to my two daughters - settling in Torbay with my wife, Anna, in 2011 - I’ve worked in the voluntary sector. I took on the role of Service Provider, for example, promoting the Red Cross Torbay Navigators Project, while now I’m a Trustee and part of the Media Team for our local Healthwatch. I’m a governor at Torquay Academy, too, giving me the chance to stay up to date with what’s happening in the world of education. Other interests, aside from friends and family, include art and art history, reading - from contemporary fiction and poetry to Elizabethan/Jacobean literature - history, politics, cooking, walking, and music, in particular Bob Dylan, the blues, and early Elvis. I love writing, too, with one novel published so far – Elvis in Wonderland – and another, Who’s There?, that still needs plenty of work!
