AN exhibition for elderly residents is to be held in Sonning Common village hall.

Colin Boyes, a police community support officer, and the Age UK charity will provide information on what services are available and offer advice on home security and rogue traders.

Other exhibitors will include Oxfordshire trading standards officers, Carers Oxfordshire, Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, Guide Posts, Neighbourhood Watch, United Energy Agency and the Fish bus service.

Mr Boyes said: “In my experience, it is surprising how few elderly residents are actually aware of what services are available to them.

“The purpose of the event is to raise the community’s awareness of them.”

The exhibition will take place on July 18 from 10am to 2pm.
