Staff from my office have been busy organising two Pensioners' Advice & Information Fairs – one-stop shops to introduce support, voluntary and other relevant services and organisations to those of pensionable age in Redditch.

I have already hosted three very successful Jobs Fairs, an Apprenticeships and Skills Fair and a Charity Funding Fair, and the Pensioners Fairs are set to follow in the wake of their accomplishments.

So far around 20 organisations have confirmed their attendance at two events which are set to take place as follows:

Friday, 3 March, 10am-12pm at the Rocklands Social Club, Birchfield Road, Headless Cross B97 4LB

Friday, 17 March, 10am-12pm at the Mettis (formerly HDA) Social Club in Cherry Tree Walk, Batchley B97 6PB

Youngsters starting University have Freshers' Fairs and for those seeking employment I run regular Jobs' Fairs, so I wanted to replicate this successful concept for my older constituents who may not be aware of the fantastic breadth of organisations out there with services they may find valuable.

The idea is to bring together, under one roof, a mix of statutory, voluntary and activity-based bodies who can showcase their services.

Organisations confirmed as taking part are: Act on Energy, Age UK, Citizens Advice, Council Electoral Services, Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, The National Trust, West Mercia Police, Home Instead, Carers Careline, Redditch Association for the Blind, Healthwatch Worcestershire, Care & Repair Worcestershire, Redditch Borough Council Health Improvement, The Alzheimer's Society, Severn Trent Water, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening and Trading Standards.

Admission to both events is free and refreshments will be provided as well.
