An initiative aimed at helping older people to keep safe is taking place again this September.
Run by the Tendring Community Safety Partnership (TCSP), Older Persons Crucial Crew sees a number of organisations give advice on a range of topics, from crime safety and fire prevention to what to do in the event of a power cut.
The event is free, but must be booked in advance, and takes place at the Princes Theatre, Clacton, from 10am-2pm on 26 September, 2019. A light lunch is included.
Among the organisations taking part this year are Essex Police, Essex County Fire and Rescue Service and Ellisons Solicitors.
Councillor Lynda McWilliams, TCSP Chairwoman, encouraged people to attend the event.
“Every year Crucial Crew is packed full of top tips and advice, and I certainly recommend it,” Cllr McWilliams said.
“So why not sign yourself up today, and encourage your friends or relatives to come along too.”
