PENDLE'S MP Andrew Stephenson is set to host two pensioners fairs next month.

The aim of the events is to bring different community groups and charities together to provide a variety of support to those who need it.

Over recent fairs, hundreds of people from across Pendle have taken part.

Mr Stephenson said: "Every time I have run a pensioners fair people from across Pendle have come along and had access to different forms of help that they might not have been aware of, met different community groups that they can go along to, and had the chance to raise any issues with me personally.

"I look forward to hosting another two events this year and I would encourage as many people to attend to see what help and groups are available to you."

The first one will take place on Friday, October 6, at the North Valley Community Centre in Birtwistle Avenue, Colne.

The second one will be on Friday, October 13, at the Earby Community Centre in New Road, Earby.
