Welcome to the October 2016 edition of Sajid Javid MP's newsletter.

Welcome

to the October edition of my e-Newsletter. 

I'm excited to announce that I'll be hosting my first Bromsgrove Pensioners' Fair on Friday 25th November.
 
The event aims to help local residents learn more about the facilities available in our area. With over 20 stands confirmed, including representatives from the West Mercia Police, Bromsgrove Artrix Centre, Age UK, Care Force, Harris Coaches, University of the Third Age, The Dolphin Centre, Avoncroft Museum and Johnson Fleming, there are plenty of options to meet all needs.
 
The Fair, which will be free for members of the public, will be held from 10am to 1pm at the Parkside Hall off Market Street. If you’re retired, know someone heading to retirement or curious about the services in our town, please do come along.
 
If you would like to exhibit, or for more information, please do get in touch.  



It's important for me to hear your comments, thoughts, and feedback, so please don't hesitate to contact me.
