OLDER people in Stockton have been given the chance to make their voices heard.

The event, to be held in the Oakwood Centre, Eagles-cliffe, will help older people find out what is going on in Stockton and the range of services available for them.

It is also an opportunity for them to tell Stockton Borough Council and their partner organisations what it is like for them living in the borough.

The free forum will take place on Tuesday, October 26, from 10am to 3.30pm.

Free transport can be arranged for those who would find it difficult to attend.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.For details, or to book a place, contact (01642) 624726.
