Press Release: 22/09/2010

Free movie morning for the over 55s

Winchester’s Over 55's Forum is inviting older people in the District to a FREE screening of the film, Mamma Mia, at The Screen Cinema, St Cross Rd, Winchester at 10.30am on Thursday 30th September 2010.

The invitation is open to all those over the age of 55, and is being held in an effort to bring older people together and promote the work of the Over 55's Forum. The Forum aims to give a voice to older people across the District to ensure that their needs are being met by local services.

In addition to learning about the Over 55's Forum, those who come along to the free event will have a chance to meet with representatives from the Community Innovations Team, Age Concern Hampshire, and other partners from the Older Persons’ Partnership.

John Hurcom, Chairman of the Over 55's Forum, said: “This event will provide a perfect opportunity for older people to get together, have fun, and also hear about the work of the Over 55's Forum. In the current climate, it’s important for older people to have their say on the things that matter to them in their local community. I invite all those over 55 to come along and enjoy the free film!”

Seats for the free screening will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
