50+ Forum

There are three independent 50+ Forums supported by Torfaen Council, in partnership with Age Connects Torfaen:  

  • Blaenavon 50+ Forum 
  • Pontypool Senior Active Support Forum 
  • Cwmbran 50+ Forum 

The groups each meet monthly, in person, in their respective towns. Anybody aged 50 or over and living in the area is welcome to attend and become a member.  

By attending 50+ Forum meetings you will: 

  • Find out about local news and information (including updates from Age Connects Torfaen, the Council and other Public Services) 
  • Hear from guest speakers about interesting topics 
  • Take part in consultations and have a chance to have a say on issues that will affect you 
  • Meet new people 
  • Have opportunities to go on occasional coach trips 

Meetings take place on Tuesday afternoons: 

  • Blaenavon - 1st Tuesday of each month  
  • Pontypool - 2nd Tuesday of each month 
  • Cwmbran - 4th Tuesday of each month 

The forums meet for 11 months of each year and arrange a nice Christmas meal in December!
