SIDMOUTH Area Senior Council is recruiting new members at its one year anniversary meeting next week.
The Senior Council for Devon, financed by Devon County Council and the Devon Primary Care Trust, was set up to provide a forum for people over 50 to voice their concerns and ideas about the provision of services which affect their quality of life.
The council is working with local government, the PCT and local groups to help develop a county strategy to tackle the challenges of an ageing society and to develop services of greater benefit to that society.
It is a member of Devon LINk, whose work is concerned with health and social care issues and is also liasing with East Devon District Council and representatives of Sidmouth Vision Group.

Shelagh Morse, secretary of Sidmouth area Senior Council, said: "The Senior Council can only succeed and expand with an increased membership which lets its voice be heard, and so an invitation is extended to everyone in the Sidmouth area to join us. "You can be sure of a warm welcome and that your views are important to us."
Membership is free to anyone 50 and over and associate membership is open to organisations providing services for that age group.
