PERSHORE and District Older People's Forum annual general meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 7, at 11am at the Pershore Volunteer Centre in Billing House.

The forum, which was formed in January 2003 and is a member of the Worcestershire Partnership of Older People’s Forums, promotes the welfare and concerns of older people.

In 2006 it started its own unique project called POPET, or Pershore Older Peoples Entertainment Therapy, and using grant funding, donations and fundraising we have been able to provide a programme of live entertainment for the elderly using a portfolio of volunteers and entertainers.

They always welcome new members and anyone interested can call Les Edwards on 01386 556207 or Jeanette Dowling on 01386 555508.
