Forum events

The Forum is a regular meeting for older people to have a say about the things that matter to them. The Forum offers a chance to find out about different services available to older people and to help influence the way these services are delivered. It is also a good opportunity to meet people and enjoy a social gathering.

Following the successful launch in July 2012,  the Forum now meets regularly at Forum meetings every other month ….. not to mention other special events throughout the year!

You can also keep up-to-date on all our activities by reading our newsletter,  ‘The Voice‘ and you’ll find booking forms on the same page.

Forum Events 2021 – Revised programme

Thursday  December 16th    2 – 4pm  Christmas Beetle Drive   This event has been cancelled due to COVID restrictions 

Message from Ann Hill

The trip to Markenfield Hall was the last trip this year. I feel Christmas will be manic this year and I am not happy taking you out into that environment. We’ve all tried hard during the last 18 months and in my case, if it hadn’t been for my garden and allotment, I would be climbing the wall. I will start again, all being well, in April 2022. Thanks for your support over the last seven years and I hope next year gets back to some normality.   Ann

We are planning a new programme of events for 2022. However these may be cancelled if the pandemic restrictions require this. Day trips will advertised nearer the time in order to minimise cancellations.


Good News!  The Lunch Club is back …..
