OLDER residents can get advice and support at an event dedicated to keeping people independent in later life.

Havant’s Public Service Plaza will play host to staff and volunteers from local agencies who will be on hand to answer questions, offer advice and to promote services available to older residents and their carers.

Trading Standards will also be testing electric blankets but appointments must be made for this by calling 01962 833358.

The event runs from 9.30am to 12.30pm tomorrow.
