Festive fun at next Golden Age Fair

It's Fenland District Council's last Golden Age Fair of the year - and it's packed full of festive flavour not to be missed.

Free mince pies and hot drinks will be on offer at the event, which is being held at March Braza Club on Monday, December 4, between 11am and 2pm.

As usual, the Council's Golden Age team will be on hand with a vast array of useful advice and information for the over 60s, including tips to help older residents prepare for the colder months ahead and stay well this winter.

Anyone over 60 is invited to attend, along with friends, family and carers, to see what's on offer - and get into the festive spirit!

Among the services on offer during the day will be the 'Fenland Ferret', a computer programme which has so far discovered more than £800,000 of unclaimed benefits.

The Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service will also be offering an electric blanket check, with any blankets failing to meet safety standards being replaced with new ones for free.

Year 5 and 6 pupils from Westwood Primary School in March will also be joining festivities at around 11.15am to sing songs they will be performing at next year's Voice in a Million concert in London.

More than 20 partners and charity groups will be providing support at the event too, including Macmillan Cancer Support, Diabetes UK, Breathe Easy, Age UK and Everyone Health. New Vision Fitness leisure centre staff will also offering free health checks and fitness tips.

Councillor Mike Cornwell, the Council's Cabinet member responsible for Golden Age, said: "Our Golden Age Fair offers a great opportunity for older people to get advice about living well, particularly as temperatures drop. As it's the season of goodwill, we will also be giving out free canvas shopping bags, mince pies and hot drinks. I hope to see as many people as possible here at our last event of 2017."
