All are invited to join the Norwich Older People’s Forum (NOPF) as it holds its annual general meeting next week.
Crossing the generations: where old and young meet together’ is the title of this year’s event, which is to be held on Wednesday 3 October at The Halls, Norwich from 10am.
Those who attend will be captivated by an interactive presentation delivered by Garage students.
Find out more about the inspiring intergenerational projects a variety of organisations are delivering in the city and take advantage of the wealth of information there will be at a range of stalls.
The role of NOPF is to make sure the voices of older people are heard and can influence the way services are planned and delivered locally, as well as work to improve the lives of older people living in and around the city.
Verity Gibson, chair of NOPF said:
“Conflict between generations is nothing new but when resources are stretched there is a tendency to scapegoat certain groups, older people among them.
This year we aim to bridge the gap. It’s an opportunity for people of all ages to meet and share views, negative and positive in a friendly atmosphere. It promises to be lively but fun as well.”
The meeting will start at 10am, with refreshments served at 10:10am and a light lunch will follow the meeting when it finishes at 1pm. All are welcome to attend. There’s no need to book a place, tell your friends or bring one along with you.
