People aged over 50 are being invited to join the debate at Lichfield District Older People’s Forum.
The meeting on April 21 will feature key speakers and a range of local issues will also be up for discussion at Emmanuel Christian Centre in Netherstowe.
Jane Bax, part of a multi agency task group set up following the tragic death of a resident of North Lichfield in January will be present to explain what the group has been doing, and to listen to any concerns from people attending the forum, while Martin Hunt, the Benefit Assessment Manager from Lichfield District Council will be there to give a brief overview of benefits to make sure people are taking up their entitlement.
The final speaker will be Jeff Woodall from Lichfield District Council who will be able to explain what’s happening about on street parking in the District, now that the Council has taken on responsibility for parking enforcement.
Melvin Madeley, Chair of the Older People’s Forum said:
“The aims of the Lichfield District Older People’s Forum are to help people speak up for themselves, and influence decision makers on matters which impact on their everyday lives. We welcome this opportunity to find out what services are available to older people in the district, and to find out what we can do to influence them!”
The Forum is free and open to anybody over 50 and there’s no need to book. Anyone who has difficulty getting to the meeting can contact Chris Stanley at Lichfield District Council on 01543 308737 to see if any transportation is available.
