Matlock 50+ Forum Giving Derbyshire’s 50+ Community a Voice

Join the Matlock 50+ forum and get your questions answered, your voice heard. There are speakers 4 times a year on topics our members suggest, which could include you. There is time for questions.

The meetings are free and include a tea and biscuit break.

You can join the 50+ group when you first come. There is no obligation to come every time we meet. The meetings are on Mondays from 2 till 4 pm, at The Imperial Rooms in Matlock. The next one is on 16 September, then 18 November. We can arrange transport to and from the meetings.

If you want to get more involved, you can join the working group to help arrange the meetings – we meet once a month for less than 2 hours.

The Matlock group covers the surrounding communities including Wirksworth, Darley Dale, Winster, Tansley.

50+ is funded by Derbyshire County Council Adult Services. We have a forum support officer who supports our work, but it is up to the volunteers who run the working group to arrange speakers for our open forums from the topics suggested by our members.

Past topics have included:- Befriending, Blue Badge scheme, Cyber-crime, Defibrillators, Derbyshire Community Bank, Driving safely for longer, Fire Safety, The Internet, Home safety, Local bus transport, Local health & Healthwatch, Local MP Q&A, Pensions, Personal Insurance, Probate, Recycling, Scams, Time swap, Trading Standards, Trusted Trader, Welfare rights.
