“For two years we weren’t allowed to hold in-person events like this so I’m delighted we can finally get people and groups together to showcase the many different businesses, charities and leisure groups we have here in MK.”

Iain Stewart, MP for Milton Keynes South, added: “I am hugely excited to organise an Over 55s Fair with Ben Everitt MP, something we both know will be of great benefit to residents. This includes me as someone who enters his 50s in the not-too-distant future.

“It is no secret that Milton Keynes has a growing number of older residents, so I believe it is important to showcase the many positive opportunities we have on the doorstep to improve our health, safety, wellbeing and leisure.

“Do not be put off if you are under the age of 55. There will be plenty of exhibitors in attendance showcasing opportunities that are available to you.”
