Westminster Senior Citizens Forum on Wednesday 5th July

The Parish of Little Venice is very pleased to support the Westminster Senior Citizens Forum by offering a venue for their meetings, the first of which was held in St Mary's Church on Wednesday 5th July.  The meeting went splendidly and was very well attended. The Guest Speakers at this meeting were Actress - Sian Phillips and Director - Waris Hussein who were on top form, and the Lord Mayor of Westminster, Ian Adams was most charming and welcoming in his address.

Westminster Senior Citizens Forum is a group run by older people, for older people in Westminster.  Its main aim is to provide advice and act as an information resource for older people in the City of Westminster and also to lobby on various issues on their behalf.

The Forum holds four meetings a year, plus an AGM.

A wide range of subjects of  importance and concern to the Senior Citizens of Westminster is covered  including Transport (Speakers from Parking in Westminster, Dial A Ride and  Transport for All), Health issues (Discharge from Hospital, Warm and Healthy  Homes, Energy Grants, Sight, Hearing, Preventing Falls), Security and Safety  (Metropolitan Police Safer Neighbourhoods Support), Westminster City Council  Adult Services Personalisation Scheme,  and on a lighter note Speakers from  the world of Entertainment, Sports, Leisure and Well Being, and Fitness.

Our meetings always include a lively Q & A Session with the speakers, and distribution of very useful and informative literature.

At the end of each meeting, the audience is invited to make suggestions for future topics.

The Forum also aims to provide social events and outings, so that some of its members feel a little less isolated, and more in touch with the outside world.

Membership is £5.00 a year.
