Everyone is welcome to a free Information and Advice Day in Tonbridge on Saturday 28 September to find out about services and activities for older people in the Tonbridge and Malling area.

The event has been organised by the Tonbridge & Malling Seniors Forum (TAMS) and will run from 11am to 1pm at the Angel Centre, Angel Lane, Tonbridge TN9 1SF.

There will be stallholders from local groups, clubs and organisations who will be offering free information and advice on local services including health, benefits, housing, clubs, societies and activities as well as a chance to win a hamper of local food and lots of free giveaways.  Deputy Mayor and Mayoress for Tonbridge and Malling Cllr Roger Roud and his wife Pam will also be there on the day to meet people and have a chat and Tom Tugendhat MBE MP, Member of Parliament for Tonbridge and Malling will also be attending.

Free refreshments will be available throughout the family event along with crafts and activities for children.

Sue Curtis, Chair of TAMS, says: “This promises be a great event for anyone who wants to find out about the help and advice available to older people. I hope that people make the most of this opportunity to meet new people, develop new interests and pick up some useful advice by coming along to see us on the day.  All ages are welcome!”

TAMS is an independent and non party political group, which was set up to promote the needs of older residents. It is made up members of the public who have a wide variety of backgrounds and a broad range of skills, talents and experience.  By working together they act as the voice of older people in Tonbridge and Malling – speaking out and advising on local issues and concerns.

TAMS is run by a small management committee made up of local volunteers.  They welcome new members to join the Forum and help plan meetings and events. To find out more about TAMS and the free event, please email tams.forum@yahoo.com or visit www.tamsforum.weebly.com.
