A COUNCIL is calling on the over-50s to have their say at new forum.

North Herts district councillors want the middle-aged and above to join a new Older People's Forum to campaign against discrimination towards the older generations.

A spokesman for the council said: "It will make sure that decision makers are aware of their views and take them into account. The more over-50s who join, the more powerful its voice will be on a side range of issues."

The group is intended to be independent of the council after the initial set-up and will liaise with police, voluntary services and the Primary Care Trust.
