On Thursday 24th March, we sent a representative to the Lodge Hotel where a panel of local Councillors of the Causeway Coast and Glens Council met with local older people.

The event was organised and facilitated through local voluntary agencies Age Concern Causeway and COAST.  This session provided a forum for older people in the local area to propose questions or concerns to the panel in the hope of achieving an answer to their question or resolve to their concern. This provided useful insight into the concerns of local older people, some of these included: the councils support of volunteers and voluntary organisations; public transport; dog fouling; bin collection services; activities and programs for older people; leisure facilities, membership and concessions.

The panel responded to all questions/concerns raised and where an answer couldn’t be given directly on the day, they vowed to seek an answer.
