We are pleased to report that Staveley Seniors Forum is still a very well attended group. On average we have 25 people who regularly come along each month and everyone enjoys getting involved in all the topics and discussions. We have had a variety of speakers attend our meetings and our members have regularly asked some very testing questions!
Many of our officers were involved with discussions regarding the impact that the Staveley Centre would have on the local area. We always try to ensure we are involved with any local projects which will affect the lives of the local 50+ community.
The forum has had a commemorative bench placed in the Staveley Memorial Garden to remember our special friends Peter Stearn and Shirley Flint.
What we're doing
We still get a wide variety of speakers each month on a range of topics, for example, this year so far has included representatives from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue and Trading Standards, The Post-national Chairman for the Royal British Legion Women's Section, the Rooftop Trust Project, the St John's Eye Hospital in Jerusalem, the information roadshow officer for Age UK Derby and Derbyshire and a members presentation on a road-trip of Russia and Mongolia.
Our Toenail Care Service is running extremely well with most weeks requiring a waiting list, so please ensure you book your place. The service is held weekly on a Tuesday commencing at 1.30pm at Rectory Road Surgery. There is a small charge of £5 per visit. Please see attached poster for more details.
We also continue to run our 'Extra Time Project' at the Staveley Healthy Living Centre. Gentle exercise sessions are held on a Monday in the activity room - we meet at 12.30pm for coffee and 1pm to 3pm for exercise. There is a small charge of £2 per person to help cover the cost of the fitness trainer. Members can also use the gym equipment.
