Over 55's Forum
The Over 55's Forum, which is chaired by local resident John Hurcom and supported by Winchester City Council. It aims to provide a voice for older people across the Winchester District. It is made up of volunteer members from neighbourhoods and communities across the whole of the District.
The group meet once a month, mainly in the City Centre. They have identified their priorities as:
- Information services for Older people
- Encouraging volunteering amongst older people
- Assisting with transport issues
So far the forum has been busy with events such as the health promotion event - Rust Proofing the Body, Information Day and Question Time with local decision makers. The forum is always looking for new members.
