David Borrowman – Legal Issues for the Older Generation.

David Borrowman, who spoke earlier last year on, Legal Issues for the Older Generation, on behalf of Age Scotland, at a very successful meeting, makes a return visit to expand on some of the issues he discussed previously – issues which we might wish to consider but to which we do not have easy access to answers. Many of us have our own ‘lawyer’ with whom we do business, but like to know what is available to us and how to access this, as older citizens in sometimes difficult situations. David Barrowman was one of the first lawyers to link with Age Scotland to provide older people access to information on such topics as care and costs, trusts, equity release, Powers of Attorney, etc. He will also bring excellent booklets.

Ian McAnulla – Political Cartoons - A Window Into History

Although Ian has not spoken at our Town Hall meetings before, he is a very familiar face at the OIR History Group where he has given several interesting inputs. The group members are always extremely enthusiastic about the return visits of this excellent speaker. Although new to public speaking, his often humorous and very informative inputs are always very well received.
