Pensioners are being invited to Three Rivers District Council’s Pensioners’ Forum on February 28.
The agenda includes three speakers and a film.
The opening speaker is Gary Evans, CEO of Demand, a charity aiming to enrich the lives of people with disabilities.
This creative charity aims to produce purpose-built equipment for individual disability needs.
It will be fascinating to hear about their wealth of imaginative engineering and technical expertise.
Next, Liz Burns who works with Work Aid which is a charity with an ethos of “providing tools for life,” will address the meeting.
The charity aims to tackle poverty mainly in East Africa and the UK through work.
They provide tools and equipment for self-help groups and vocational training projects.
Lisa Cook from Three Rivers Leisure Services will introduce the Forum to the Leavesden Country Park Project.
Lisa has been instrumental in managing the Country Park restoration for Three Rivers in partnership with The Heritage Lottery Fund and Warner Bros.
The final item, by popular request, is the film A County at War; Life on the Homefront in Hertfordshire.
We have an explanation and some little-known facts introduced by Roger Yapp, Chairman of Abbots Langley Local History Society.
Participants say they enjoy the variety put into these forums and this will be no exception. As usual, there will be refreshments and cakes available.
