Who are we??

My name is Peter Meyer, I have an office at 117 Coppice Road Arnold Nottingham NG5 7GG and I am the owner of this website, www.oversixties.co.uk. I have created this site because, having passed the grand old age of 60 myself several years ago, I found that the only websites that catered for people in our age range were either created for marketing purposes only, or concentrated on specific, narrow subjects. I felt that there was a need for a source of more general, and (dare I say) impartial information for people in their 60s. This can be a very complicated age to be; for many of us it is a time of great change, as we reach retirement age and look to future which will probably bring great challenges that we have not had to face in the past.

For many of us it will become a golden age as we discover new hobbies, interests and even, perhaps, human relationships. For others it may be a time of battling against illnesses or reduced incomes.
As a retired industrial chemist I am by no means an expert on any subject whatsoever beyond my own specialities. However, I'm aware that whether our later lives are a rewarding and enjoyable experience, or a time of trials and tribulations, can depend very much indeed upon our access to information which is relevant to us. This should be made much easier to get hold of now that we have the Internet, something that most of us never dreamed about in earlier years. However, a lot of the sites out on the Internet exist only to relieve us of our money; others can be difficult to navigate, or understand, even for those of us with maturity, intelligence and patience. I therefore decided to create this site to try to gather together as much relevant information as I could. Like all websites this is meant to be a continuous work in progress and if you have any suggestions about subjects that we should write about, comments about our current articles or thoughts about any way in which we can improve this site I would love to hear from you.

Again, I must stress that I am not an expert on any of the matters that are written about on this site, so please do not ask for advice about any personal matters because I just will not be able to help in any way. However, if you have suggestions, comments or complaints about our site, or even just fancy a chat, it would be great to hear from you. You can contact us by .
