Kapiti Grey Power is expecting large numbers of locals to turn up to two public meetings next week in a drive to get real action for all those aged 50 and over — and others needing help.
Roger Booth,, president, says there’s been lots of talk, but little progress in getting better health services and dealing with a host of problems.
The meetings, on Tuesday, March 21 at 10am, and Thursday, March 23 at 9pm will both be held at Southwards Car Museum Theatre.
Former mayor Jenny Rowan will help locals to identify six aims , and Grey Power will then work with local politicians and health providers to get real action.
Roger Booth points out the local Grey Power group has more than three thousand members — and is the largest Grey Power group in the North Island.
“This year needs to be the year when things improve,’ he says.
