Councillor Lynne Walmsley is Wyre Council’s Lead Member for Older People and comments, “We are very much looking forward to bringing together the great variety of social groups and activities on offer in the local area for our older residents. If you’re new to the area or recently retired and looking to meet some new people or start a new hobby, this is a great place to start. Our staff will also be on hand to answer any questions you might have about council services, plus we’ve got some nice festive entertainment lined up. Come and join us for a chat, a brew and a mince pie.
“This is our first Older Persons’ Festive Fayre and if it proves popular we are hoping to host more across the borough.
“If you know of anyone who might benefit from coming along please let them know and help us spread the word.”
