Age Matters CH64

Published: 13th February 2019 11:10

A group of volunteers in Neston has come together to ensure the continuation of support and advice for older members of the community.  

In the Autumn of 2108, AGE UK decided to close the Neston office. The local operation had been running in Neston for 24 years, managed for the entire time by Anne Jones, a resident of Neston.

A small group of people, supported by Justin Madders MP, decided to try and maintain the service for the local community - providing much needed support, advice and counselling.

Age Matters CH64Offering support for the Over 60s in Neston - (l-r):Mandy Powell, Anne Jones, Jackie Gorman and Len Sloan. 

Anne was prepared to continue, and with the support of two colleagues and a newly formed Committee, AGE UK was contacted. They accepted that Anne could continue to provide a service beyond their compass and indeed, supported the move with continued access to a telephone line.

The group was named AGE MATTERS CH64 and, working from The Methodist Church on Monday and Wednesday mornings, the group operates next to the TEA POT - a drop in café for local community members.

Working closely with Jackie Gorman, Anne is on hand to provide much needed support within the Over 60's group in the CH64 area.

The small committee has been set up to provide direction, support and fundraising activities for what is a small, voluntary Community Group Charity.

Contact Anne on 0151 336 8388 or drop in between 9am and 12pm on Monday or Wednesday.

CHAIR: Gareth Powell
SECRETARY: Amanda Powell
TREASURER: Jackie Gorman
COMMITTEE MEMBERS: Janet Griffiths, Mandy Powell & Len Sloan

The postal address is a bit misleading, that was the address before the redevelopment of the church in 1999, since then the entrance is in Park Street, opposite the dentist, and the postcode is CH64 3RB. I echo the thanks of others to Anne, who has provided this service for all of these years, and was not going to allow a decision made in a remote office to stop her.

You need to log in before you can do that! It's only a quick registration process to join the AMA network and completely free.
