MP Question Time for local older people

Are you wondering just what is going on in politics and Parliament at the moment (and who isn’t)? What else should our politicians be concerned about other than Brexit? Funding for Care? Local Transport? Local hospitals?
The Horsham District Older Peoples Forum (HDOPF) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting (courtesy of and supported by Horsham District Council) their highly popular annual ‘MP Question Time’ event for local older people this November.
Martin Bruton, Chairman of the Forum said: “The Horsham District Older Peoples Forum originally started this meeting of local older people with a local MP in 2016 with Jeremy Quin MP, which proved to be so well attended, informative, candid, interesting and enjoyable it is now being held annually.”
The HDOPF ‘MP Question Time’ is a genuine opportunity for the local older community from across the Horsham District, to meet a local MP, put questions, raise issues and listen to an MP’s views. ‘Getting it from the horse’s mouth’ and ‘face to face’ rather than from the news or social media. This November, MP Question Time will be with the Rt. Hon. Nick Herbert, MP for Arundel & the South Downs.
The meeting is for older people aged 60+ living in the Horsham District or those who care for someone who is, or those involved with or who care about the issues faced by older people. The event is also open to anyone who is involved with the challenges and issues faced by older people in the Horsham District, including our local neighbourhood, parish, district and county councillors.
The event is free to attend and will be held between 10.30 am and 1 pm on Friday 22 November 2019 at the Council Offices, ground floor conference room, Parkside, Chart Way, Horsham. Doors open at 10 am for free tea & coffee.
If you would like to attend, the Forum would just ask that you book your place (for catering and as space may have to be limited) via email to hdopforum@gmail.com
If you have a question that you would like to ask Nick Herbert MP, (even if you can’t attend the meeting), email that to the Forum before the event please, so that a fair range of questions can be put forward and, if research is needed, Mr Herbert will have the answer on the day.
