Showing toy trains: why do we do it?

Posted in Preston Pages Community, The Post Community on Feb 01, 2018

I blame my father for starting it way back in 1951, when he visited Gamages of Holborn, now no more, but famous then for its toy department and model railway. His mission was to buy me, his train-fixated son, a train set for my third birthday. He chose a British made electrically powered set by Trix.

Older People’s Council

Posted in 7 Directory Community, Preston Pages Community, The Post Community on Jan 01, 2018

Have you heard of the Older People’s Council? We are a group of older people elected by over 60-year olds in the city and we are there to inform the Brighton and Hove City Council about the issues that concern older people. We check through proposals and budgets and campaign for action if we feel older people are being treated unfairly. We also act similarly with health and care issues in the city. We do this by meeting with Councillors, Council Officers and NHS/CCG managers to put our views across.
