Give your views at Listening Events for older people
Older people living in West Lancashire can give their views to Councillor Terry Aldridge, the Borough Council’s Cabinet member with portfolio for Older People, at two special Listening Events.
These Listening Events have been organised so Councillor Aldridge can hear the concerns of older people in the borough. A member of the Council’s Money Advice team will also be at the sessions to deal with any issues that people might wish to raise.
The first one takes place on Tuesday 22 March, at the meeting room at the Chapel Gallery, Ormskirk from midday-1.30pm. The second is on Wednesday 23 March at Evermoor Enterprises (formerly Digmoor Community Centre), Digmoor, from midday-1.30pm.
It is free to attend the sessions, but if you wish to come along please contact Jane McNeice on 01695 585216 or email at email@example.com to book a place.
Councillor Aldridge said: “The main purpose of the event is for me to listen to you so I hope you take this opportunity to give me your views. We are keen to listen so I’d like people to come along so we can listen to the views of older people about council services.
“We aim to be a listening council, talking to people face to face and getting a better understanding of the situation in different areas of the borough. This will help us to shape some of the policies and services that affect older people and I hope it will give us a better understanding of our local communities.”
Councillor Aldridge is also Lancashire County Council’s Older People Champion and covers this role for the Borough Council.
