Surprise guest for JCA June meeting

A surprise guest will be in attendance at JCA’s June meeting, and everyone from Johnsonville, Raroa, and bordering areas is invited to meet them.

JCA is sworn to secrecy about the guest; all we can say is our guest is probably going to have an effect on every family in the area. (There really will be a surprise guest, no mucking you around!)

The June meeting of JCA will be held at Johnsonville Community Centre (Room 1), Frankmore Avenue, at 7:30pm on Wednesday 27 June 2018.

Main points on the agenda:

  • The AGM — we aim to get this done smartly. We’ll have info about how the year has gone, priorities for the year ahead, a very brief briefing on finance, and a couple of minor constitution changes. See below for relevant supporting documents.

  • One of Wellington's new Euro 6 efficient diesel double-deckers

    Big changes for northern suburbs buses – current issues and future prospects for local people. Presentation and Q&A by Greater Wellington Councillor Daran Ponter and Tranzit Transport and Operations Director Kevin Snelgrove.
