$250k plan for seniors

A $250,000 relocation plan is under the radar for the Senior Citizens Centre in Yalalevu, Ba.

Centre secretary Arun Sharma said the centre had been used to co-ordinate many programs for their 130-plus members.

"We feel this centre is very important for the community because it is some place that senior citizens can go and interact with each other," Mr Sharma said, citing health clinics, religious programs, and art and craft classes organised at the centre.

"Currently, the place we are renting can only accommodate about 40 people. This is the reason for our relocation."

He said they were liaising with donor agencies to help fund the move to a new site.

"We will be looking at staying within the Namosau and Yalalevu area because this is where most of the senior citizens come from. We want them to have easier accessibility when travelling to the centre."
