pub lunches. To get in touch with any Friendship Centre, Age UK's

One final point, if you reach 75 your TV licence is free.
On retirement most of us want to stay in the familiar surroundings of
our own home. It’s the place we probably shared with our partner for
years and brought up our family. We've got it just right for us, we
know its foibles and quirks like an old friend and the last thing we
need is the upheaval of leaving it.
You don’t have to move out and you could receive support services
such as additional security measures, an emergency alarm system or
help with shopping cleaning and even washing from your local
council's social services department.
