Three Rivers Pensioners’ leave on a high note

26th November 2018

Having listened to feedback, Cllr Joy Mann, Chairman spoke to a number of local organisations who brought displays including: Croxley Common Moor, Friends of Chorleywood House, Herts Health Walkers, Leavesden Country Park, Rickmansworth Waterways Trust and Three Rivers Museum. 

The Pensioners heard from Sarah Hill who spoke about the “Getting Together Clubs”; Gill Nightingale from the Watford Workshop discussed disability in the workplace and Megan Bowyer shared just how much Watford Workshop had helped her to date. Val Kleanthous introduced the audience to “Dancing with Parkinson’s and her innovative plans for the future. Lynn Watkins, harpist from Abbots Langley, played music lifting everyone’s spirits. 

Feedback received includes: “great to see stands and speak to the people hosting them”; “speakers were interesting”; “the music was uplifting making me want to sway”, “the cakes were absolutely delicious” and “we love coming to these events.” 

Cllr Joy Mann said: “I am delighted with the feedback and will keep listening to and aim to address any issues raised by our Pensioners’. It was warming to see so many people brighten up seeing the opportunities available. The icing on the cake was that they are already looking forward to the next event.” 

The next forum will take place on Friday 15 February 2019 in the Penn Chamber at Three Rivers House from 1.30pm for refreshments and cake. The speakers will commence with their presentations from 2pm onwards. We hope to have another surprise for our guests aiming to end on another high note!
