Age UK East Sussex is marking its 70th anniversary with a weekend of entertainment for all ages at its Vintage Spring Fair at the Metropole Lawns, next to the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea on 18th & 19th May 2019 – and it’s completely free to enter.

Taking inspiration from the era when Age UK East Sussex was established to provide help and advice for the over 50s in the county, the Vintage Spring Fair will be packed full of entertainment, shopping, food and fashion, including performances by Susan St Nicholas and Nick James, a vintage fashion show, traditional children’s fairground, artisan hot food stalls and the much-loved Harvey’s Brewery horses.

The event will also be a great opportunity for visitors to find out more about the many services that the charity offers to older people in East Sussex, including invaluable advice on financial issues such as social welfare benefits, how to protect themselves from becoming the victim of scams and health services such as foot care. All of this help is available via Age UK East Sussex’s new mobile information and advice resource centre vehicle which travels around the county of East Sussex to take the charity’s vital services to vulnerable older people in hard to reach and rural locations.

“East Sussex is a great place to grow older and has one of the largest populations of over 65s in the UK, but not everyone realises how much support there is available to them,” said Age UK East Sussex Head of Fundraising & Marketing David Hannam. “The aim of this event is to bring together all the other charities, organisations and small businesses that we work with from across the county and raise awareness of the work we do and how older people can access our services. And we’re also aiming to have a lot of fun at the same time!”

An important aspect of Age UK East Sussex’s work involves campaigning to bring about positive change in government policy affecting older people and efforts to raise awareness of potential dangers such as financial scams. At the Vintage Spring Fair this important message is combined with a delicious serving of ‘Phish & Chips’ thanks to mobile catering van The Frying Squad which, in collaboration with Santander, travels around the country delivering valuable advice on how to avoid the millions of phishing emails, texts and phone calls that cause misery for many older people every year.

Visitors to the fair can also join in with Age UK East Sussex’s Healthy Living Club chair-based exercise sessions, a dementia-friendly singalong and a sensory quiet space for those who suffer from autism and other neurological illnesses.

The Vintage Spring Fair, which will be opened by Huw Merriman, MP for Bexhill and Battle, takes place on Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th May, 10am-5pm, on the Metropole Lawns, Bexhill-on-Sea. Potential stallholders or volunteers wishing to support the event are welcome to contact Age UK East Sussex Events Co-ordinator Adam Wilkins for more information.
