Conference was a major success

MAY we, the public, say how much we enjoyed the Conference for Older People, held at Newbiggin’s Sports Centre on April 3, by Newbiggin Parish Council.

It was a success from beginning to end. Even the chocolate Easter eggs for bingo and getting the 20 questions on general knowledge correct.

We did not realise there were so many institutes, clubs, forums, for people of that ‘certain age’ in Newbiggin and also a day centre opening in the former Newbiggin Police Station catering for all the needs of the elderly. We wish them good luck for the future.

While all the different stands – representatives came to us to explain what their aims and objectives were for the aging population. A very good two way exchange and a common sense approach.

The buffet lunch was excellent and also the beverages constantly supplied at the conference for our needs.

A big thank you once again to the Newbiggin Parish Council for hosting the event – a job well done.

We cannot wait for the next conference to take place.
