The April/May Forum Focus is now out

It should be with you by now. Forum Focus is one of the many benefits that membership of the Forum brings.

This issue leads with an article on the issues that really matter to older people and what we, as older people in Enfield, really think would improve our lives. If you are interested in any of the activities of the Forum, browse this site, read the newsletter or contact us. If you are not yet a member, visit the membership page!

It leads with an Age UK report that concludes that we need to move to a “home first” appproach for care and support.

In addition to all the regular items and information on groups, activities and what we are doing, this issue has articles on :

April/May Newsletter now out

We pay tribute to Monty Meth in the April/May newsletter which is now out. We also use the opportunity to all for more volunteers, especially for the Executive Committee and the Social Events Team. This is your Forum and we need new ideas and energy to help drive it forward. Note (p2 “Back to the gym”) that the Fusion Leisure Centres will be opening on 12 April and you need to make sure your membership is up to date to get the Forum discounts. And check out p15 “Become Creative” as we are still looking for your contribution to our exhibition.

February/March Forum Focus now out!

The February/March edition of Forum Focus is full of information about your local community. We look at the financial challenges faced by Enfield Council and the potential attacks on the finances of older people as the government seeks to pay for the pandemic. We continue to ask for your support for the Forum’s finances in these difficult times and we outline our new projects to help combat loneliness (pp13,14). Check out our upcoming webinars (p16) and look at the Social Calendar (p15) so you can start planning for trips later in the year and in 2022.
