Please see below an invitation from the Unforgotten Forces partner the Scottish Older People's Assembly (SOPA) for veterans aged 65 and older to attend an engagement event taking place at the Legion Club in Bathgate on Thu 13th June. The views, voices, issues and opinions gathered at this event will then be taken to SOPA's annual Scottish Parliamentary Assembly at Holyrood later this year in October. As such this will be a good opportunity for older veterans to help influence parliament and politicians etc. in regard to the issues that affect or matter to them. Refreshments, lunch and musical entertainment will also be provided (for free!).
Should you have any queries about this event, or wish to book a place, please contact Caroline Clark at SOPA on e mail: email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> or tel: 0131 357 1277

What are Community Shares?
Community shares are a way for people to invest in what matters to them.
Community members buy shares in enterprises providing goods and services that meet their needs. In turn, the business is owned and governed by the community it serves. Community shares can save local shops and pubs, finance renewable energy schemes, transform community facilities, support local food growing, fund new football clubs, restore heritage buildings, and above all, build stronger, more vibrant, and independent communities.
What will happen on the day?
The workshop will be practical and inspiring – with a focus on sources of free support and lots of success stories from the previous 5 years of the Community Shares Scotland programme.
This event is aimed at both community groups and intermediary support organisations. And there will be a tasty lunch!

As you may recall from last year, the Great Get Together takes place in June each year. Inspired by Jo Cox MP, the event aims to bring together communities to build connections, share all that they have in common and emphasise that there is more that unites than divides us.
A few weeks ago, the GGT team met with the Cab Sec for Communities and LG and the Minister for Older People and Equalities. They committed to the SG working closely with the Jo Cox Foundation to support promoting the Great Get Together in Scotland.
This year’s Great Get Together will take place from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 June.
Information on events that took place last year and some background to the Great Get Together can be found here.
