Three Rivers District Council’s Pensioners’ Forum showing a local film

04th February 2020

Three Rivers District Council’s Pensioners’ Forum next meeting is being held on Friday 28 February in the Penn Chamber, Three Rivers House, Northway, WD3 1RL. It starts at 1.45pm and ends at 4pm. 

The invitation includes all Pensioners in Three Rivers and beyond. The agenda includes three speakers and a film. 

The opening speaker is Gary Evans, CEO of Demand, a charity aiming to enrich the lives of people with disabilities. This creative charity aims to produce purpose-built equipment for individual disability needs. It will be fascinating to hear about their wealth of imaginative engineering and technical expertise. 

Next, we will hear from Liz Burns who works with Work Aid which is a charity with an ethos of "providing tools for life.” The charity aims to tackle poverty mainly in East Africa and the UK through work. They provide tools and equipment for self-help groups and vocational training projects. 

Lisa Cook from Three Rivers Leisure Services will introduce us to the Leavesden Country Park Project. Lisa has been instrumental in managing the Country Park restoration for Three Rivers in partnership with The Heritage Lottery Fund and Warner Bros. This exciting project has the intriguing title “Minds, Machines and Movies” and is the legacy of the area’s history. It has become a place for site-seers with 9 contemporary installations and a variety of amenities welcoming the community and visitors alike. 

Our final item, by popular request, is the film “A County at War; Life on the Homefront in Hertfordshire.” We have an explanation and some little-known facts introduced by Roger Yapp, Chairman of Abbots Langley Local History Society. 

Participants say they enjoy the variety put into these forums and this will be no exception. As usual, there will be refreshments and cakes available.
