50-Plus in Wimborne. (l-r) Emma Regan from Douch Family Funeral Directors, Tanya Cripps, manager of the Allendale Centre, Karen Wyatt-Epapara, customer relations officer at the centre, and Nick Douch, MD of Douch Family Funeral Directors.

Following the enormous success of two previous events, Douch Family Funeral Directors are holding another 50-plus information day.

The next one is being held in Wimborne’s Allendale Centre on Wednesday May 9 – and it is free to enter, with free refreshment.

Previous events in Broadstone and Ferndown have attracted hundreds of people and dozens of stalls.

At this event will be financial planning advice, befriending groups, dementia awareness, crime prevention, sports and fitness activities and cookery demonstrations.

The event, which is being supported by the Allendale Centre and POPP, will have volunteers and the fire brigade giving out free slippers that help prevent trips and falls in the home

Town crier Chris Brown will be straining his vocal chords to let people know what is going on and the mayor, Cllr Terry Wheeler, will be opening proceedings.

Emma Regan, from Douch Family Funeral Directors, said: “After the success of the last two 50-plus events we decided to hold one in Wimborne.

“We will have around 40 stalls covering every sort of thing you can imagine and visitors really enjoy them.

“There is parking in the public car park adjacent to the Allendale Centre (disabled parking on site) and free refreshments and we look forward to seeing as many people as possible.”

The event runs from 10am to 2pm.
