Matt Warman MP is inviting local residents to Boston and Skegness’s first ever Older People’s Fair. The information fair will be held at The Storehouse on North Parade, Skegness on Friday 8th June 2018 from 10:00 until 13:00.
Exhibitors at the fair will include charities, agencies and local organisations that provide support and assistance for older people. Everyone has a parent or grandparent, colleague or friend who they look to for advice and to learn from – this event is about bringing older people and the organisations that can help them together to create better understanding and support.
The fair will offer guests the opportunity to discuss issues they might need assistance with and make them aware of services which they could benefit from. There are 28 confirmed exhibitors so far, including:
Age UK Lindsey, Barclays Digital Eagles, Lincolnshire CVS, U3A, Skegness and District Running Club, St Barnabas Hospice and Healthwatch Lincolnshire.
Along with the main exhibition, there will be a private room available for confidential conversations with exhibiting organisations. Additionally there will be a number of presentations throughout the day with topics including Scam Awareness and Wealth Management. Entry to the event is free of charge, and includes refreshments.
Speaking ahead of the event, Matt said, “In my constituency, we have over 24,000 residents aged 65 or over. Many are actively engaged in their local communities but social isolation and loneliness can be an issue, particularly in a rural community such as ours. I am very pleased to host this event as a way for older people to connect with many of the fantastic local services, clubs and organisations and discover opportunities for volunteering, befriending, help and advice.”
