The event is free to attend and aims to provide residents who are retired, or heading to retirement, with information about the facilities available to them in Calderdale.

Mr Whittaker said: "I held a Pensioners’ Fair in Brighouse before Christmas which was very successful.

"Over 800 people came along to the Brighouse Fair and I am hoping for a great attendance at the Mytholmroyd event too.

"The fair provides advice and support to people of retirement age in terms of what support and assistance is available in our local area.

"It also gives local groups and societies an opportunity to showcase what they do and attract new members. I will also be available all day to speak to people about local and national issues."
