Local MP, Mike Freer, has held his second Pensioners Information and Advice Fayre, this time at Golders Green Parish Church. As with the first event held in Finchley, hundreds of local residents attended. The event, to which older people from across the area were invited, brought together over twenty local and national organisations, including charities, social clubs, the Metropolitan Police, London Fire Brigade and local authority services.
Commenting, Mike said, “I am so pleased that this second Pensioners Fayre has proved as popular as the first. Many people are surprised that there is so much help and advice out there for older people. This ranges from how to keep your home warm, to avoiding scams. I am very grateful to everyone who attended and particularly the stallholders who helped make the event possible."
Mike plans to hold a similar event for older residents of Finchley in September.
