The parliament, which is due to sit in April 2008, will give older people in the borough a voice, acting as an advisory body to the council, primary care health trust and other agencies on issues important to pensioners.

Anyone attending the meeting will be able to find out about how to be elected a member, and the responsibilities. Contact Age Concern on 01302 812345.
