Get your blanket tested ready for winter
ADVICE and information for older people across North Somerset will be on offer at a free festival in Weston-super-Mare.
The Age UK Somerset Senior Community Link Festival is on October 9 at the Winter Gardens from 10am to 3.30pm.
The festival brings together the five Senior Community Link groups from across North Somerset for members to share their views on health and social care issues.
There will be a range of stands, a question time panel and the chance for people to try arts and crafts and IT equipment. There will also be the chance for people to have their electric blankets tested before the winter weather starts to bite.
Electric blanket testing is also taking place at the Wesley Centre, Portishead, on September 20 from 10am to noon and on October 1 at Clevedon Scout Hall, Great Western Road, Clevedon, from 1pm-4pm.
To book an appointment for blanket testing call 01275 884236 and to find out more about the Senior Community Link Festival visit firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0845 6434706.
