Golden Age 20th anniversary events
Over 60s have the chance to find out about services, social activities and support available to them at the first Golden Age fairs of 2023 - the event's 20th anniversary year.
Fenland District Council's Golden Age fairs, which launched in 2003 by the late Cllr Mac Cotterell MBE, bring together organisations as diverse as specialist gym operators, healthcare teams, skills training services and benefits advisors to provide advice on what's available to over 60s.
Organisations each have their own stand where visitors can browse information and meet representatives.
Visitors will all receive a free reusable water bottle to promote good hydration as part of good health.
Cllr Susan Wallwork, portfolio holder for communities, said: "Anyone can drop in, have a stroll around the stalls, have a chat and a free cuppa and pick up lots of useful information along the way.
"The fairs are hugely valuable both for the partner organisations who come along and individuals.
"There's good reason that these wonderful events have been going for 20 years now!"
Fenland District Council is always happy to hear from organisations that would like to attend the events.
Cllr Sam Clark, Golden Age team leader, said: "Partner organisations tell us how valuable the fairs are for them not just in reaching lots of individuals but also in learning about other services for their users.
"My thanks go to everyone involved in the organisation and planning of these events, including the very dedicated committee."
