I recently attended a fantastic ‘Older Persons Keeping Safe’ event at the Stevenage Arts and leisure Centre organised by the Herts Fires Service and the Stevenage Borough Council. 200 older people and over 30 stands representing a variety of services in the community attended and there was loads of advice and information throughout the day.
