Open Morning to Celebrate 40 Years of Age Concern Syston

Age Concern Syston have been helping the people of Syston and the surrounding villages for 40 years. To celebrate this occasion we are holding an Open Morning on Wednesday September 18th between 10.00am and 12noon to explain the services we provide and to reflect on the progress we’ve made over the past 40 years
40 years ago we set up in a shed, but we have progressed from that, via a portacabin, to the office now based in the rooms above the Methodist Church on the High Street. Our current office is reached through the door between the church and the Hub coffee shop (then follow the signs upstairs).
We are open Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 12noon. We’re always happy for people to call in for a chat, to book a trip or to get some information. If we can’t immediately help we’ll try and find someone who can.
The services we provide at Age Concern Syston are:
• Coffee Morning – held every Wednesday between 10.00am and 11.30am in the Methodist Church Hall
• Providing Advice – free confidential information and advice, assistance to fill in forms for benefits etc. Every Thursday, by appointment, or by a home visit if you need it
• Day Trips – using our minibus once or twice a month we visit local places of interest, go on theatre trips and boat trips. Members book each trip individually according to their taste
• Day Care Groups – for less mobile people we have two day care groups led by Group Leaders. All members attending are picked up by our minibus and leader
• Merton Group – once a month a group of members go out to lunch to a variety of local venues
• Respite Group – for members caring for an elderly person we have an outing once a month
If you would like any further information about any of our services please call in at the office or give us a call on 0116 260 1476 and talk to Yvonne or Elaine, or email
We would love to see you at our Open Morning, there will be refreshments and a chance to talk to staff, trustees and members about the activities and services we offer and maybe do a spot of reminiscing over 40 years.
