Around 2000 residents and carers attended the fair in 2017 to celebrate the contribution older residents make to the borough, and this year will be no different.

The day-long event will have over 80 stalls to browse and the chance to try out a number of activities including fitness, dance and sport demonstrations, and a Tea Dance. There will also be a programme of talk sessions, live music and dance performances on the day.

It's a great opportunity to get information, advice and to meet new people and organisations within the borough. You will also have the chance to provide feedback on local services and speak to Adult Social Services staff directly about key services.
