SOME pensioners discovered that they were entitled to more benefits when the Golden Age Fair team visited Wisbech on Tuesday.

A fire officer was also available, giving out free advice on fire safety and precautions.

The team spoke to around 50 older people at the Fenland @ Your Service shop with representatives dishing out free benefit health checks for customers.

The next full Golden Age Fair will be held in Friday Bridge on May 19.
