We are holding a meeting in conjunction with the Enfield Older Peoples Partnership Board to look at changes that will affect the lives of older people in Enfield. Speakers include Jan Shortt, General Secretary of the National Pensioners Convention, the country’s largest campaigning organisation for pensioners, on the threat to the triple lock while others will report on the changes affecting the National Health Service and social care in Enfield.
More details along with a link to register soon.
Most of the borough’s leisure centres run by Fusion are open, though with limited hours and classes. Forum members need to register to ensure you receive the concessions. See the latest news here.
All members should receive the October- November edition of Forum Focus in the post by the beginning of October. If you do not, check that your membership is still up to date. And it is also available to see here. It includes articles about the importance of getting the flu jab, the problem of loneliness, news from the police and ,of course, the ever popular jokes in Always Look on the Bright Side. Our president Monty Meth discusses why lobbying is important and there is an update from Fusion Leisure about the re-opening of its centres in Enfield.
We held a joint Zoom meeting with Enfield Climate Action Forum on Monday 2nd September at 7pm. For a report of the meeting, see the latest Forum Focus newsletter
The office at Millfield House is currently closed to visitors due to the lockdown, but Ruth and Diane are working there so do call them (020 8807 2076) if you cannot renew your membership by post or online.
Our AGM was due to take place on 30 June but obviously current government regulations on large gatherings prevented this. We are investigating the possibility of holding it online as well as looking at new dates later in the year. We will let you know as soon as it is decided so check back here and/or look out for emails from us. (So make sure we have your email address if you have one).
