Role

The charity holds monthly member meetings; social evenings and events; holidays; monthly day trips; and over 60 special interest groups including walking, singing, bowling, quilting, genealogy, French, theatre, mah-jong, cycling, bridge and pilates.

WL50+ is overseen by a Committee of volunteers elected from the membership. The wide range of special interest groups are run by members for members drawing on their extensive skills, experience and interests. The staff are based at the WL50+ Hub in Bathgate, which is also a space for members to meet. The Hub is normally open to members 10-2 Monday to Friday. We have recently acquired new premises in Bathgate where the hub will relocate to and we will run some of the Network’s activities and special interest groups.

  • to educate through links with 50+ groups;
  • to encourage the development of links between organisations in West Lothian that can further these aims.
