At their April meeting, members of Grey Power voted unanimously to donate a bench seat to the community. The seat will be similar in design to the one outside the iSite building, and is to be placed at the southern end of the Farmers building in Thames Street. Grey Power is to purchase the seat, while the council will arrange its placement.
“Having somewhere to sit and rest while shopping is useful not only for older folk but also for mothers with children and for tourists,” said president John Sim. “Grey Power believes there is still room for more seats along Thames Street. Our shopping area is not as user-friendly as shopping areas in many other towns and cities.”
