More organisations have now signed up for a forthcoming Pensioners' Advice & Information Fair organised by staff from Karen Lumley, MP for Redditch's office, this Friday (3 March 2017).
The event, set for the Rocklands Social Club, Birchfield Road, Headless Cross from 10am-12pm, now boasts some 21 exhibitors, each anxious to showcase their services to those of pensionable age.
Karen herself is off sick from Parliamentary and constituency duties presently, and may not be able to attend herself. However she said: "I am really excited about this first Pensioners Fair. The idea is to bring together, under one roof, a mix of statutory, voluntary and activity-based bodies who can showcase their services."
A second event is planned for Friday, 17 March, from 10am-12pm at the Mettis Social Club in Cherry Tree Walk, Batchley, and further Pensioners' Fairs are being scheduled in other areas of town, probably for June.
Admission to all events is free and refreshments will be provided as well.

Redditch has been my home for nearly 20 years and it has been a huge honour to have represented its great people for the past seven.
Sadly due to ill health I have decided not to stand for re-election. There is nothing more important or rewarding than helping people, however I need to be fully fit to be able to undertake the job properly.
I am immensely grateful to all the fantastic people I have met during my time as a Member of Parliament and want to say a huge thank you for all of their support.
Redditch deserves strong and stable leadership. Every vote for Theresa May and your local Conservative, Rachel Maclean, on 8 June will strengthen our hand in negotiations to get the best possible deal for Brexit and beyond, leaving Britain stronger and better off for the future.
