Senior citizens consider sharing with Warwick school
THE Warwick Senior Citizens Association will this month further discuss plans to replace its building on Albert St with one it would share with Warwick State High School.
Publicity officer Mick McEniery said there had been many false rumours circulating about the group's future since the proposal was made public.
He said he wanted everyone to know the association was operating as usual.
"All of our activities will still be available and we invite anyone from the senior community to come along and see what we are all about," he said.
If the proposed plans for the new building go ahead, Mr McEniery said the Department of Education and Training would pay the lease on another hub for the group.
He added it was estimated construction would take a year.
Mr McEniery said members of the Senior Citizens Association were feeling optimistic about the plans and were looking forward to further discussions next month.
"We have no concerns at the moment and the education department has been very straightforward with their proposals so far," he said.
