Welcome to ARPA Active Over 50s

The office of ARPA Active Over50s has moved to 54 Currie Street (corner of Currie and Leigh Street) for a minimum of 25 weeks(from August 24) while repairs are made to the lift in the Leigh Street premises. There will be no changes to phone numbers. All groups will meet in the Currie Street office.

When the return move is made to the Leigh Street Office, it will be to the 4th floor.

Keeping your mind and body active and making new friendships are the ingredients for a longer and more productive life.
