I am thrilled to be a rotating editor at TheBoldAge. As a fledgling community for the over 50's we are trying to find our feet, our heartbeat, our voice and as one bright spark in today’s virtual office said, our soul.

For me, I wanted to feature our DNA, the life force from which we build, the force that defines us. Whilst ageing is most definitely inevitable, how we age is not, and we want the DNA of our BOLD over 50's community to focus on the ‘positivity of ageing’.

As committed over 50's Boldies we see this time as a period of opportunity, reinvention, and most certainly relevance. A period where we can add value and still change the world.

I’m fascinated by how we approach the world and each other. I hope the stories we feature resonate with you, even with life’s challenges. Let’s lead with: WE ARE! Not we were and I AM! not I was

TheBoldAge a Bold community for the over 50's

Nigel Pritchard | Monthly Editor

WE ARE, not we were!

Live life as a Boldie

We are an exciting, fast expanding BOLD community for the over 50's. Encouraging people in their 50's and beyond to live a longer, healthier, more active and fulfilling life.

This does not mean that we will shy away from difficult and challenging subjects, but as BOLDIES we want to show a positive attitude and spirit.

As BOLDIES in our 50's and beyond we see the future as an exciting journey. A period of opportunity, relevance and joy; a time for exploration and re-invention where we continue to add value to society.

Simply put BOLDIES say WE ARE! not we were.
