Senior citizens' centre reopens
The Ettalong Senior Citizens' Centre has reopened after its extended closure after traces of asbestos were found in the building's air conditioner earlier this year.
The refurbished building opened to its members on September 21 after being closed since February.
Major renovations have been made to the roof, ceilings, lighting and split system air conditioning unit.
Gosford mayor Cr Chris Holstein said he apologised on behalf of Gosford Council for the inconvenience caused to seniors due to the closure of the centre.
"Our seniors' safety is our chief concern and these works were necessary in providing a safe environment for them," Cr Holstein said.
A mayoral morning tea will also be held at the Ettalong Seniors' Centre on Tuesday, October 6, from 10am for the centre's convenors, members and volunteers.
Interested participants are invited to respond by Friday, October 2, by calling 4341 3222.
