Erewash MP Jessica Lee has hosted her first fair for the over-50s.

The event took place at Derby College’s new campus on Pimlico in Ilkeston.

Thirty-nine exhibitors attended the attraction while members of the public also visited over the course of the day on Tuesday.

The main aim was to promote opportunities available to those over the age of 50 in a range of areas such as charity and community groups, health and employment.

Speaking at the event, Jessica said she was delighted with the reception it had garnered.

“I have received some very positive feedback from both members of the public and exhibitors.” She said.

“It has been busy with a constant stream of people attending all day long. The day has been an excellent opportunity to bring together advice and help for people on a wide range of topics, all at one location.”
