Join the Matlock 50+ forum and get your questions answered, your voice heard. There are speakers 4 times a year on topics our members suggest, which could include you. There is time for questions.

The meetings are free and include a tea and biscuit break.

You can join the 50+ group when you first come. There is no obligation to come every time we meet. The meetings are on Mondays from 2 till 4 pm, at The Imperial Rooms in Matlock. The next one is on 16 September, then 18 November. We can arrange transport to and from the meetings. More »

If you want to get more involved, you can join the working group to help arrange the meetings – we meet once a month for less than 2 hours.

The Matlock group covers the surrounding communities including Wirksworth, Darley Dale, Winster, Tansley.
