Bray People - - NEWS -

THE is­sues of im­por­tance to older peo­ple across the county will be up for dis­cus­sion at the up­com­ing County Wick­low Net­work for Older Peo­ple AGM.

The meet­ing takes place on Fri­day, May 13, at the Brock­agh Re­source, Laragh and will wel­come older peo­ple and del­e­gates from or­gan­i­sa­tions all over Wick­low.

All groups and in­di­vid­u­als who have an in­ter­est in pro­mot­ing and par­tic­i­pat­ing in ac­tiv­i­ties that en­hance the life of Older Peo­ple County Wick­low are en­cour­aged to at­tend.

The day-long event will run from 10 a.m. to 3.45 p.m., start­ing with the AGM which will con­clude by 11.45 a.m. ahead of a ques­tion and an­swer fo­rum with the five Wick­low TDs (de­pend­ing on avail­abil­ity).

In previous years, im­por­tant top­ics such as el­derly care, crime, fi­nances and tax­a­tion have been raised and dis­cussed, with many older peo­ple shar­ing their sto­ries in a pub­lic fo­rum to cre­ate aware­ness and start a de­bate.

Or­gan­is­ers will be pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion on the Age Friendly Pro­gramme and pro­posed changes to the struc­ture of the net­work.

As in previous years, af­ter the for­mal­i­ties, guests will be served lunch be­fore en­joy­ing an af­ter­noon tea dance with mu­sic by the Wick­low Man.
