On November 6th, Avoneil Leisure Centre in east belfast hosts its Winter Warmer event and everyone's invited!

It's a winter planning event aimed at helping older people prepare for the forthcoming winter and there'll be a particular focus on the most vulnerable and isolated older people in the community.

The event is coordinated by community, voluntary and local government groups, who will 'man' stands at the event and be able to help you with lots of useful information and tips for the forthcoming difficult months.
