Live Well at Home, based in the town centre, invited members of the public along with a number of other organisations for the elderly and disabled, to come along to the get together which took place on Thursday afternoon.

And they were joined by occupational therapists from Cheltenham Borough Council's social services department.
Mayor of Cheltenham Colin Hay was also at the event, which took place at the High Street store from 2pm to 4pm.
Mo Wainwright, from the shop, said the purpose of the afternoon had been to give both staff at the store and other groups a chance to speak to residents who may have otherwise fallen under the radar.
She added : "Our main aim was to let people know what we can provide for the community and also try and get other organisations involved, so that we could help each other out and work together.
"We wanted to reach out to people that do not know where to start and what help they can get.
"And, of course, holding events such as this one give us greater knowledge to pass on."
