New guide for older people in Bridgetown
Bridgetown Information and Family Resource Centre has published a handy brochure for older people in the area, listing the State entitlements of pensioners and the phone numbers of services and courses they may wish to avail of.
The booklet was launched at a coffee morning in the AOH Hall in Bridgetown and has been distributed free of charge to shops and other outlets in the village including the local church.
The Bridgetown resource centre which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, is run under the auspices of Kilmore SCOPE (Steering Committee for Older People) which operates the Kilmore jobs initiative offering people help with CV's and interview skills.
The brochure was printed by Wexford County Council and three local businesses, Button and Spoon restaurant, The Hidden Gem and Goff's Centra provided food and refreshments for people who attended the coffee morning.
The leaflet contains information on the Warm Project, Housing Adaptation Grants, Fuel Allowances, Meals on Wheels, GP Cards and Pendant Alarms and other services along with a list of activities in the AOH Hall where the information and resource centre is based.
