Market Drayton Senior Citizens Forum is for all senior citizens in the Market Drayton catchment area, not just for those who live in the town. This means they would welcome local residents from the Hodnet area.
Christine Murison, who is a local coordinator and one of the county trustees, writes:
Our Meetings are held at on the first Tuesday of every month at 2 pm in the Beacon Centre, Prospect Road, Market Drayton TF9 3BN (excluding August and December). We are a group who listen, support and represent the views of older people living in Market Drayton and the surrounding area.
When necessary we promote these views at local, county and regionally level. As well as encouraging all points of view we are informal and sociable.
Our meetings usually consist of time for a speaker on topics such as the Library Services, the local re-enactment society or other areas of interest. This is followed with time for refreshments (tea coffee and biscuits) and a raffle to cover costs.Then its time for you to air your views and identify any issues or actions.
During the last year we have had trips out and about and it is anticipated that our bi-monthly lunch club will resume during the winter months There is a Forum Magazine which has a circulation of 3000 postal and email copies currently sent to all members.
Do come and join us. Your voice is needed, with age and experience comes wisdom!
