More news, no ads


A popular Fenland District Council event dedicated to helping the over 60s find out what benefits and services they are entitled to returns next week.

The Council’s Golden Age Fairs will make a comeback on Friday April 1, after a two-year

hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first event back is being held in partnership with Gorefield Parish Council and will take place at Gorefield Community Hall and Sports Pavillion between 11am and 2pm.

Once again, the event will feature a wide range of information stands from the Council and a range of partners on what benefits and services are available to the over 60s. There will also be advice on medicines and health and fitness, with free short taster activity sessions from the Council’s Active Fenland team.

Entry is free and complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits will be available. Everyone will also receive a free Golden Age canvas shopping bags packed with goodies.

Cllr Sam Clark, Fenland’s portfolio holder for communities and golden age team leader, said: “I’m so happy that our Golden Age Fairs are returning! Before Covid we were holding four fairs a year in different villages and towns across Fenland, and they were so well received, not just by older people but also by their relatives, friends and carers who would also come along to see what was on offer.

“Support from the Council and its partners has always been available during the pandemic, but it’s great that we can now get back to doing things in person. I would encourage people to attend our next fair as I’m sure your visit will be as enjoyable as it is beneficial.”
