In our opinion the fair was a great success, providing not only a steady flow of prospective clients but also a superb opportunity to network with organisations who provide a wide variety of services for Seniors in West Kent.

The Holmesdale School in Snodland provided the superb setting.

Tracey hosts regular Pensioners Advice and Information Fairs across the constituency. Tracey invites all pensioners, their families, friends and carers in the local areas of Medway and Tonbridge & Malling to attend these free events which shared information and advice about the local services, support and activities available locally.
