Older people invited to enjoy Music on the Move

Older people in Corsham are invited to a special ‘Music on the Move' event, which will culminate in them being able to feedback on the services they would like to see provided for them.

Corsham Area Board, in partnership with Celebrating Age Wiltshire and Wiltshire Rural Music, are hosting the event on 4 March with four fun and informative drop-in stops along the way with music and entertainment.

The drop-ins are taking place at:

• Lacock Primary School at 9:30am
• Colerne Primary School at 11am
• Birdhouse Café, Box at 12:45pm
• Corsham Seniors' Special Area Board, Wadswick Green Retirement Village at 2:30pm

The final stop at the special area board meeting will give those in attendance the chance to have their say on the services available to them in the local area and the type of activities they would like to see with more entertainment, afternoon tea and music thrown in to keep the afternoon as lively and informative as possible.

The feedback received will inform the work of the Health and Wellbeing group, a sub group of Corsham Area Board, which has been set up to address local needs and priorities agreed by the community.

Feedback will also help to shape the future Celebrating Age programme in the Corsham community area by identifying arts and heritage events local residents would like to participate in.

Cllr Allison Bucknell, Wiltshire Council Cabinet Member for Communities, said: "This will be a day full of fun and laughter, but also an important opportunity for older people to tell us about the services they receive, and what else ideally they'd like to see. It's so valuable to get face-to-face feedback like this which will really help us with our future planning.

"Music, coffee and cake is an irresistible combination so we hope to see plenty of people joining in."

To book a place at the area board meeting email ros.griffiths@wiltshire.gov.uk or call 01225 718372 by 28 February 2020.
