Greenwich Pensioners' Forum marks International Day of Older Persons
PENSIONERS held a double celebration last week with a day of talks and events.
Charlton House was the venue for talks on history, music and entertainment hosted by Greenwich Pensioners' Forum.
Along with marking the campaign group's 25th anniversary, the event also celebrated the UN-backed International Day of Older Persons.
It included talks on slavery and local history, keep fit tips, along with music from the Toots Wood Singers.
Forum press secretary Clara Edwards said the forum was even more necessary at a time of cuts, which has led to the group's own Greenwich Council grant being slashed.
She said: "I think the forum is very important because it brings to light issues affecting pensioners that nobody knows about."
The forum meets on the last Friday of each month at 10am in Woolwich town hall. Call 020 8317 6825 for details.
