Recent Speakers at our recent meetings have included Dr Gill about the impact of changes in the local National Health Service and representatives from Age UK about Elder abuse and dementia care services.
Our meetings are welcoming, warm and informative. It is never too late to make new friends and ideas and opinions are always welcome.
