We at CVS Falkirk would like to thank all of our stallholders, suppliers and especially our attendees, and everyone else who joined us for our Older People’s Day event, “Age Is Just A Number”, on Tuesday! A special thanks has to go to our partners at Solicitors for Older People Scotland (SOPS) and our fantastic venue Falkirk Trinity Church (and their café!). Without them, the event wouldn’t have been possible.
With just FOUR DAYS until our FREE “Age Is Just A Number” event on Tuesday 1st October, we’re delighted to be featured in the Falkirk Herald this week! We can also confirm that British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters will be available at the event 11am – 1pm for anyone in need of their services.

There’s just over TWO WEEKS until our FREE “Age Is Just A Number” event on Tuesday 1st October! You’ll probably have seen our fantastic posters in and around Falkirk, and will know that there will be a range of useful activities and information. If you or someone you know wants to make plans for when they’re older, or is looking for information on things to do, why not come along? The Church café will be open for the whole event where you can treat yourself to a cup of tea and nice biscuit, and we’d love to have you.
Don’t forget, the deadline for responses to the Forth Valley Third Sector Conference workshop survey is 5pm on Wednesday 11th September. As the conference is specifically for the third sector, we feel it is important to have your input on the workshops we offer at the event. We’ve created a short online survey with a range of suggested workshop topics, and ask that you rank these in order of preference, based on what you feel will be of most interest and benefit to you.
With less than FOUR WEEKS TO GO, we’re delighted to announce some new stallholders for our FREE “Age Is Just A Number” event on Tuesday 1st October, 10am – 2pm at Falkirk Trinity Church. We have a very limited number of stalls left – so if your team delivers activities or services in the Falkirk area to older people, their families, friends, carers and wider social circles, don’t miss out and get in touch!
On behalf of our partners at Bo’net, we’d like to thank lots of incredible groups and people, without whom Thursday’s incredible Bo’ness Volunteer Recruitment Fayre couldn’t have happened. We hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as we did, and we hope to see you all again soon while at your new volunteering roles! You completely made the day.
