Older people in spotlight at library
SOCIETIES got together to mark Older People’s Day and raise awareness of what is on offer for the elderly.
Beaconsfield Library invited groups to take a stand at its base in Reynolds Road, Beaconsfield, on Saturday to mark the day.
There was coffee for guests as they popped in to ask questions throughout the day, browsing the society and club stalls. There was also e-gadget training.
One of the groups was the Society of St Vincent de Paul, from St Teresa’s Church, in Warwick Road. The group holds Coffee and Company on Tuesdays from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
Member Kevin Broderick, who attended the event, said: “It has been running since January 2013 and it is also welcome to new attendees.” A TEMPORARY bridge has been put in place over a village rail line as part of the Crossrail project.
