community consultation meeting

Clutha Health First chief execu-

redevelopment was expected to be
finished by the end of May,

Flax mill trip
The Owaka Lions took 25 senior citizens to
Riverton on their annual trip and had a tour round

site. She said the Lions look after the older people
of the community very well and this trip is
anticipated with interest each year.
