GLOUCESTERSHIRE County Council is holding a fostering information drop-in event in Tewkesbury.

People are invited to come along and have a chat with members of the team about fostering at Morrisons, Ashchurch Road, on Wednesday from 10am to 4pm.

The county council welcomes applications from a wide variety of people and are particularly appealing for carers for older children, teenagers, groups of brothers and sisters and disabled children.

The council aims to approve foster carers within five months of accepting their application. Those interested in fostering must have a spare room available.
