Hertsmere Borough Council celebrates older people in Potters Bar
As people across the world celebrate the contribution older people make to society today, Hertsmere Borough Council hosted a day to recognise Potters Bar’s elderly.
More than 60 older people took part in an event organised by the authority to mark International Older People’s Day yesterday.
Members of the fire brigade, police, representatives of Hertsmere Leisure and charities such as Jewish Care had stalls telling people about the services they had to offer.
Police community support officers Sam O’Grady and Natalie Pearman had a stall giving out advice on combating crime, bells to deter pickpockets and personal attack alarms.
Hertfordshire Constabulary also had boxes showing what different types of drugs look like at the event in Fairway Hall, Borehamowod.
Pamela Counsins of Hertsmere Leisure said: “It’s been very successful, we’ve had lots of people coming in to find out what local organisations can offer them. I’m very pleased with the way it’s gone.”
