YATE TOWN Council marked the International Day of Older Persons today, Thursday. 

At the Armadillo Senior Cinema session and at the Pop Inn Café, the council marked this special occasion with lots of cake as a show of appreciation to their older customers for their contributions to our community.

She said: "I am honoured to be asked to help celebrate our older people in our town.

"They contribute so much, in so many ways, to their families, our Yate community and in our society.

"Volunteering is a very rewarding and valuable element of this and we thank you all,"
