In the Autumn of 2108, AGE UK decided to replace volunteer advisers with a telephone contact for many of their outlets. The local operation has been managed by Anne Jones, a resident of Neston, for some 24 years at the Methodist Church.

A small group of people supported by Justin Madders MP decided to try and maintain the service for the local community – providing much needed support, advice and counselling.

Anne was prepared to continue, and with the support of two colleagues and a newly formed Committee, AGE UK was contacted. They accepted that Anne could continue to provide a service beyond their compass and indeed, supported the move with continued access to a telephone line.

The group was named AGE MATTERS CH64 and, working from The Methodist Church on Monday and Wednesday mornings the group operates next to the TEA POT – a drop in café for local people.

Working closely with Jackie Gorman, Anne is on hand to provide much needed support for the over 60’s in the CH64 area.

A small committee has been set up to provide direction, support and fundraising activities for what is a small, voluntary Community Group Charity.

Contact Anne on 0151 336 8388 or drop in between 9 a.m. and 12 noon on Monday or Wednesday.
