There’s a quiet but determined revival going on at Waiheke, confirmed at last night’s meeting of the local Support Group.
A number of the island’s JPs, some of whom had not met before, gathered to hear proposals for regular support meetings, training and, importantly, plans to increase present JP availability to their community with an enhanced Service Desk. It’s planned to create a roster so there can be regular sessions attended by JPs at the Citizens’ Advice Bureau in Oneroa.
Auckland Association Council members Dawn Jones (Support Groups), Ric Carlyon (Service Desks) and David Grove(Immediate Past President), advised the meeting of experiences where other Groups have been established.
The 3 Council members left the island confident that the volunteers’ enthusiasm and dedication will result in the delivery of more efficient JP services on Waiheke.
