Category Archives: Leaflets

We are always researching which topics we particularly need leaflets for. We are aiming to have a core set of leaflets aimed at over 65s, to keep them in stock and available for our local groups. Contact us to order leaflets. 

You can see our current leaflets here and you are welcome to use them (though it would nice if you credited Pensioners4Indy or included a link to this website!) 

If you only need a few, or are in a rush, then you can download them from these pages and print some off yourself. The images you are seeing on the page here are not high resolution so might not print very well. But you can download the original file from the links below the images.
