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.

Statement on Westminster attack
Following the attack on police and members of the public in central London yesterday (Wednesday, 22 March 2017), Karen Lumley, MP for Redditch County commented as follows:
"Yesterday was a very sad day for the people of our country, particularly in London, and my first thoughts are with those who were killed or injured and their families.
"Westminster is the seat of one of the oldest and most respected Governments in the world, and upholds values of free speech, liberty, human rights, and the rule of law – values shared by free people around the world. Amongst the bloodshed of yesterday, we must never waiver from our resolve to beat the terrorists.
"I, along with many MPs, actually knew PC Keith Palmer, the policeman who died, because he was often the first friendly face we would see when entering the Parliamentary estate. I often shared a morning joke with him. My deepest sympathies lie with his family and those of others killed or injured."
Karen was not in Parliament yesterday as she is currently still at home in Redditch recovering from her illness.
Get in touch with Karen's office if you'd like to meet with her. Due to high demand surgeries are by appointment only to make sure there is time to give every case the attention needed.
