Mid Sussex Older People’s Council Information Talk – Residents Invited

Do you know what benefits and services are available for older people living in Mid Sussex?  ……. if the answer is ‘no’ then come along to Hapstead Hall, Ardingly on Tuesday, 7th October at 7.15 pm to listen to Anita Wright who is the Community Development Worker from Mid Sussex Older People’s Council.  The MSOPC is a local charity run and managed by older people and Anita will be talking about the benefits and services available.  You might be looking to join a club or activity in the area or perhaps you wish to find out some information on behalf of an older relative who needs some help. The idea behind the talk is to keep our older residents informed so they can keep healthy, active and happy.  We look forward to seeing you there.
