First-ever fair for the over-60s

First ever fair for the over 60s

We've been invited to take part in the Pensioner's fair on Friday 1 August, Hoylake Community Centre between 11.00am – 3.00pm. Bringing together key organisations to share information about the range of services, advice and support available to people in their retirement – the event is expected to attract 400-500 people.

We'll have representatives from the Independent Living Centre, Falls Prevention Service and Livewell programme on hand to tell people about some of the support they can get from our Trust. If you're around next Friday why not pop along to say hello?!
More than 20 organisations will be taking part in the first 'Over 60s Fair' organised by Esther McVey, MP for Wirral West. The day will provide a 'one stop shop' for the over 60s, as well as their families and friends.

Esther said: "Many of the people who contact me want independent and impartial advice on issues that particularly affect the over 60s.

"The Internet is great for quickly obtaining information but you can't beat a face to face chat over a cup of tea. I'm really grateful to all the organisations that have agreed to take part and look forward to welcoming residents on the day."

Peter Fletcher, Chief Executive Officer, Abbeyfield Hoylake & West Kirby Society said, "for older people, finding out what support is available to them can be complex and confusing. The Abbeyfield Hoylake & West Kirby Society have been established in this area for over 50 years and are pleased to support this initiative by Esther McVey to bring suppliers of services to older people under one roof and hope we can contribute to providing clear advice and support."
