Happy birthday Fosterfield

Monday, July 16, 2018

A specialised service supporting older people and people with dementia in Chorley has just turned 30.

Fosterfield, based on Eaves Lane, celebrated its big day on Friday 13 July.

Visitors to the centre, current and former employees, volunteers and people on work experience came along to join in the fun.

Festivities to mark the occasion included speeches from people who use the centre, live music from a local band, food and a raffle.

Fosterfield is owned and run by Lancashire County Council.

Laura Orrell, day centre manager, said: "This was a fantastic day and an opportunity to celebrate what's been achieved at Fosterfield over the years.

"This is much more than a normal service. The activities bring together people who use the centre, volunteers and the community - young and old.

"We had great fun and the day highlighted how we provide specialised support for elderly people and those living with dementia. Anyone wanting to find out more about our service should get in touch."
