The recent Age UK Lindsey and Talk, Eat, Drink (T.E.D.) in East Lindsey event, ‘Spotlight on Ageing’ in Horncastle was very successful.

The aim of the event was to showcase opportunities and helpful organisations that support older people in Horncastle.

The event was attended by a variety of different organisations and members of the public, seeking information about the opportunities available to them.

Brian Burbridge, Mayor and Chair of Horncastle Town Council said, “The event was very successful with lots of excellent information to be had from a range of organisations and I look forward to the next event.”

This was also an opportunity for the organisations to network and make connections that may lead to collaboration in the future.

Nicola Stanton, Programme Development Officer at SoundLINCS said, “The T.E.D. and Age UK Lindsey event in Horncastle was a fantastic way to meet people who are involved in the many services in the area. It was a great networking opportunity as well as a forum for meeting with potential clients and participants. Lovely cake and coffee too!”

Jennie Wilson from Age UK Lindsey said, “A lot of people aren’t aware of what is available – whether you are looking to join in something or interested in volunteering. This is a great opportunity to bring everything to the people of Horncastle.”

Guy Dewsbury, Programme Manager for T.E.D. said “It was so encouraging to see many different organisations gather under one roof. T.E.D. were really happy to partner with Age UK Lindsey in organising such a successful venture. It is really exciting that there are so many people who can help and provide assistance to older people in Horncastle. I look forward to many more events like this in the future.”
