Board of Trustees

Maggy Piggott CBE FRSA

Maggy Pigott CBE FRSA (Age Activist Trustee)

Maggy, a barrister, enjoyed a 37-year Civil Service career, job-sharing for 23 years. She received a CBE for her contribution to the administration of justice and flexible working. In retirement, Maggy discovered a love of dancing and writing and a growing interest in what makes for a healthier and happier later life. She is a member and Vice Chair of the charity Open Age, tweets @Ageing Better to her 8,000+ followers, and, at 68, her first book ‘How to Age Joyfully: Eight Steps to a Happier, Fuller Life’ was published. Her other voluntary roles include being an Ambassador for Para Dance UK and a member of the Public Service Honours Committee.

Given her passions and age (in her 70s), she is delighted to join the Board as an Age Activist Trustee. Maggy is married with two children, and lives in London. [LinkedIn: Maggy Pigott CBE FRSA. Website: Instagram: @agejoyfully. Twitter: Age Joyfully @AgeingBetter; Maggy Pigott @MaggyPigott]
