Golden Age event

Fenland District Council’s Golden Age team returns to action next week with a visit to Parson

Drove, organised in conjunction with the parish council.

They will be visiting the village hall on Wednesday (January 23), 10am-1pm, to offer help to

anyone aged over 60. The Fenland Ferret will be there to sort out any benefits or allowances

people may be entitled to.

Also on hand will be a member of FDC’s leisure team to provide details of what is available at its centres and carry out blood pressure tests for anyone who wants one.

Councillor Mac Cotterell said: “Please drop in for a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit and try out a game of bowling or simply have a chat. Everyone who comes along will be given a Golden Age

shopping bag containing more help.”

Councillor Gavin Booth, chairman of Parson Drove parish council, said: “Once again we’re

delighted to be working with Golden Age to bring this surgery to the village. Please come along – I’m sure you’ll find it both enjoyable and worthwhile.”
