Cllr Patrick Clarke said: “The Pensioners Parliament is an excellent lobbying group that ensures that the voices of the elderly members of our society are heard.
“With the age profile of our population changing, with more people living and working longer, politicians must ensure that the relevant services are in place to meet this change.
“We must work to ensure that we deliver first class health services. However, we should also look to provide adequate cultural and leisure activities.
“I thoroughly enjoyed this event, and I wish those who took part and organised this event every success in the future.”
