Positive Steps to safety
10.30am – 12.30pm
at The Wakes, Theatre Square, Oakengates, TF2 6EP
Keep yourself safe from scammers and fraudsters.
Presentation by Citizens Advice Telford
Millions of people of all ages are targeted every year by fraudsters, by post, telephone, online and even on their doorstep. Some people are particularly vulnerable, maybe because they are bereaved, lonely or lack the knowledge or understanding about what to look out for, what sets the alarm bells ringing. Often people feels pressurised and lack the confidence to say no. This can result in devastating consequences, financially and for health and wellbeing.
We’ll also be joined by Police Community safety Officers to answer your questions about your concerns.

50 Years of Pastimes in Telford
The Forum’s reminiscence event as part of the Telford 50 celebrations
On Wednesday July 4th 2018 we will be holding a reminiscence event at The Place, Oakengates, inviting you to view an exhibition, chat with local history groups, and with one another about how life and the town has changed in the last 50 years in Telford.
We’ll be reminiscing about social activities, clubs and pastimes you’ve enjoyed over the years and the places you’ve frequented. We also want to try and capture your memories, so have a look through your albums to see if you have any pictures of local landmarks or places you used to go. Perhaps pictures of yourself dressed up ready for a night out or enjoying Super Saturday, or time in the park with your children.
Bring your photos along on the day or maybe you would be willing to let us copy them to use at the event. If you are involved in a local history group and would like to take part or if you have an interest in local history and would like to help us organise the day, please Contact Us.
