St Helier Festival 2017
Fallen Angels Project
Helping Older People Beat Scams
You may remember me as a former Councillor, and some of you may be aware that I have been involved in a project to raise awareness among older people of scams and thefts that have been aimed at this target group.Please let me know if you know of any groups/organisations/individuals who might like details of the video or a copy of the DVD. I am happy for you to pass on my contact details if anyone wants further information, either about the project, or about Fallen Angels.
I am Chair of Fallen Angels, a local drama workshop group for over 50’s (details below), and over the past year, supported by the Safer Sutton Partnership and the Sutton Community Fund, we have worked on producing a video showing examples of scams and giving suggestions on how to avoid becoming a victim. We are all in the target age group ourselves, and thought this would be a good way of putting our acting and writing skills to practical use, as well as raising Fallen Angels’ profile within the local community. We are making the film available on YouTube, as well as on DVD for free distribution to local groups.
We would welcome your help in passing on details of the project to anyone you think will benefit from viewing the video.

Fallen Angels was founded in 1996 under the name of Charlie’s Angels, as a drama workshop group for the over-50’s. We originally met at the Charles Cryer Theatre in Carshalton, but when the Council wished to use the premises for other purposes we changed our name and moved to the meeting room at Wallington United Reformed Church in Stanley Park Road, Wallington. We meet weekly in term time on Thursdays from 2.00 to 4.00 pm. The group provide the opportunity for older people to meet others with an interest in theatre and acting, and to practise improvised and acted scenes purely for the entertainment of the group. The environment is supportive and the emphasis is on having fun, and we gain insights into acting techniques and direction as well. Our programme is planned and overseen by a professional co-ordinator: actress Tamara Wilder. The sessions enable people in our age group to combine social interaction with learning and activity, where we develop communication and creative skills, and no-one is obliged to perform in public unless they want to – we aren’t an "am-dram" group. We take part in theatre games, role-play, mime and musicals. We have tried stage combat, and devised potted versions of anything from Greek Tragedy to Dad’s Army. Anyone interested in joining can attend two sessions for free before committing. After that it’s £72 for a twelve-week term (£36 for half) in advance or £8 per session
