Computer boost for town’s 50 plus forum

Matlock’s 50 plus Forum was given a £500 to purchase a much-needed laptop.

The money came from county councillor Mike Longden’s Local Communities Leadership Scheme.

Cllr Longden presented the new computer to the forum’s acting vice chair David Brown and congratulated the forum on their efforts to highlight issues facing older people in the area.

The forum’s next meeting will be on Monday, December 12 at 2pm at Matlock’s Imperial Rooms. Anyone over 50 is most welcome to attend.
