Welcome to the Elders Council website.  Our special feature this month is:

Outings with a Concessionary Bus Pass

We have published out Outings with a Concessionary Bus Pass booklet, just in time for you to enjoy getting out and about over the summer.  You will find a copy in the section on 'Newsletters & Reports' under Information Leaflets.  If you would like to receive a hard copy of the booklet, please send an Stamped Addressed Envelope to the address below.  If you have a good trip out using the Booklet, please don't forget to write in and tell us all about it.

EC Fortnightly Ebulletin

Some of you are getting our new fortnightly ebulletin, the EC Fortnightly. As its title implies, it comes out every two weeks in order to update members on what’s happening in the period between newsletters.

Only 494 members have so far subscribed to this service. If you have email, would you like to add your name to the subscription list?  We think that you might find it a useful service to keep you up to date.  If you want to receive EC Fortnightly, please ring the office on  0191 208 2701 or email her at [email protected]

Of course, EC Fortnightly requires a bit of work to put together. Would you be willing to join a small team of members to take responsibility for doing this? If you’re interested, please ring Steve on 0191 273 4727; leave a voice message if he’s not in. We would, of course, give you training in the technical aspects of putting the bulletin together.
