Stepping out for Summer        


Concessions… special offers….visit historical houses and gardens, theatres, museums 

For the second year running, the British Gas/Scottish Gas/Help the Aged Partnership is running an exciting, month long programme from 1st - 30th June providing literally hundreds of offers and concessions for anyone of retirement age or over (although some are applicable to those over 50). The offers include concessions on rail and bus travel across the country, and reduced price entrance to famous and historical attractions such as houses and gardens, castles, theatres and museums.  

Some 50,000 older people participated in the event last year.  Were you one of them?  If not, don’t let another year go by without getting involved. This year, Stepping Out  is aiming to double last year’s participation figures and reach the goal of getting one million older people out and about. 

So how does a stroll around an English Heritage property sound?  Or maybe a trip to the theatre or a visit to the Scotch Whiskey Heritage Centre in Scotland? And if you want to make a weekend of it, there is discounted hotel accommodation on offer as well. 

For full details of the offers available, call 0870 770 3288 for a free programme.  Anyone can order a Stepping Out programme, even if it’s on behalf of older friends, neighbours and relatives.
