Advocacy group Grey Power Marlborough meets regularly with Mayor John Leggett to canvass issues of concern or interest to its membership.

The Mayor says he will continue to meet them regularly, to ensure the voices of older people in our community are heard.

Council’s Housing for Seniors Sub-committee provides a forum for discussion on all things related to Council’s senior housing stock - for example mobility scooter access and parking at Council-owned housing facilities.

The Council’s Older Persons Forum also meets monthly to discuss issues affecting older people. It helps keep the Council in touch with the needs and wishes of Marlborough’s older residents.
