Trade in your old worn out slippers for FREE at a Slipper Swap Event being held at Cheshunt Library on Tuesday 5 December and find out how to avoid falls and stay safe and well this winter.
Old worn out slippers are often responsible for trips and falls, which can lead to hospitalisation and loss of independence. That’s why we’re offering older and vulnerable residents the chance to swap their old slippers for a free brand new pair of anti-slip ones.
Keeping active is another way to lower the risk of falls and visitors to this event will have the chance to try out some easy activities demonstrated by Occupational Therapists. Visitors can also learn about equipment and aids to help them stay safe at home and discover lots of helpful tips and advice from library staff, HertsHelp, AgeUk and more.
Libraries are for more than borrowing books these days and library staff will be on hand to promote services, such as care information, the Home Library Service, the Reminiscence Collection and the online library at home.
There’s no need to book, just go along to the event between 10am – 12 noon. There will also be a Slipper Swap event at Welwyn Garden City Central Library on Wednesday 13 November.
Other slipper swap events will be taking place across Hertfordshire on the following dates:
Monday 15 Jan 2018 North Watford Library
Wednesday 4 Jan 2018 Baldock Library
Thursday 1 Feb 2018 Bishop Stortford Library
Wednesday 14 Feb 2018 Hemel Hempstead Library
Wednesday 21 Feb 2018 Berkhamsted Library
All events are 10.00am – 12.00noon. No need to book, just drop in.
