Nelson Tasman Positive Ageing Expo – 1 April

Over 70 Community Groups and Service Providers covering Health, Hobbies, Sport & Recreation, Government Services and Support Groups for Older People. Free entry & transport.


Thousands are expected to attend the popular annual Positive Ageing Expo, a showcase of the recreational, health and social services available in the region for retirees and those planning for retirement.

With more than 70 stallholders, the expo has plenty to offer anyone interested in making ageing a positive experience.

The expo attracts crowds of more than 2000 most years, and has received a TrustPower Community Award commendation.

This year there will be seminars, demonstrations, the chance to have a go at a range of activities as well as quick health checks.

Seminars include:

Get Online Savvy:  A presentation by national experts in online safety Netsafe NZ. The internet is full of interesting information – but there are also scams and they are constantly evolving. Being savvy is about arming yourself with the information you need to protect yourself. NetSafe handles 8000+ reports from the public a year, which keeps them up to date with current scams and what we need to watch out for.

Top Tips to Keep Your Home Warm, Healthy and Comfortable:   Tips from Nelson City Council Eco Design Advisor Richard Popenhagen.

Health Literacy….. Finding the right words for better health. An informal discussion about asking for and receiving your health information in a way that you understand, Wendy Strawbridge, Health Action Trust.
