Following the success of last year's Pensioners' Fair, I'd like to once again invite pensioners, their families and friends to attend my second free event!
Thursday 8th August
Mansfield Civic Centre on Chesterfield Road
10am - 1pm
This is an opportunity to share information and advice about local services, support and activities that are available locally.
Up to 50 organisations have a stall, which includes Active Retirement Groups, Health Services, Senior Forums, Leisure Services and local police. There will also be advice services on benefits, wellbeing, legal advice, carers advice and representatives of Mansfield District Council and many others.
It's really important to provide information that allows older people to access extra support that they may need so they can continue to live a full and active life. Sometimes it's difficult to know where to begin, so I hope that this Fair will bring everything together under one roof!
Last year's turnout was brilliant - we had over 40 stalls and more than 300 people attended. I received really positive feedback from stall holders and residents. I'm delighted to have the opportunity to host another fair! I hope this year's is even more successful.
