police mark 'International Day of Older Persons'
police marked the 'International Day of Older Persons' with a
special event in the town on Tuesday (October 1st).
Older people around the world were celebrated as part of the
annual event, whose aim is to raise awareness of the issues affecting
the lives of senior citizens.
As part of the activities arranged in Somerset to mark the day,
Sgt Ash Jones from Burnham-On-Sea Police Station visited members
of the senior community to give talks on doorstep crime and cyber
safety, as well as distributing copies of the police's latest
Senior Siren magazine.
One of his stops was the weekly meeting of the popular U3A Art
Group in Berrow Community Centre.
He told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It's great to catch up with
older members of the community and there is clearly some great
artistic talent in this group. I hope that my brief chat, coupled
with the information in the Senior Siren, will enhance
the safety of the members of this very vibrant group."
To coincide with International Day of Older Persons, the latest
edition of the magazine has been published. This edition features
articles on crime prevention, home and personal safety advice
in addition to many interesting lifestyle features, including
an interview with Lord Tom King. You can read the latest edition
of Senior Siren here.
