Retired civil servants are being urged to join the Unison Retired Members Blackpool Local Government Branch which is keen to welcome new members.

Its meetings, which are held on the first Tuesday of the month at 11am at Blackpool Town Hall, are open to all retired Unison members.

Among the groups aims are to campaign to keep services and protect members’ jobs.

A spokesman said: “You will meet new friends and perhaps catch up with old work colleagues. You don’t get old because you retire but because you lose your sense of purpose and need something to do in retirement.”

The group supports various charities and is also affiliated to the National Pensioners Convention.
