Kildare County Council officially launched it this week.
Kildare County Council has officially launched Celbridge as an Age Friendly Town this week.
An Age Friendly Town is one in which older people are actively involved in social, economic and cultural life and in creating a better local environment, to everybody’s benefit.
The local community in Celbridge has worked with Kildare County Council, and the Kildare Regional Age Friendly Programme to achieve this Age Friendly status.
The Council says the main street in Celbridge is now fully accessible, safer, and more pleasurable for older people in the town.
Older people can walk safely, park their cars in the designated Age Friendly parking space, shop, socialise and rest of any one of the new Age Friendly seats that have been installed in the town.
Celbridge is one of many Age Friendly projects in Kildare.
