6500 Sign Kenepuru Petition: Unprecedented Support

Published: Fri 24 Aug 2001 08:42 AM
In the last 3 weeks more than 6,500 Porirua and Kapiti people have signed the petition to support Kenepuru Hospital.
Regional councillor Robert Shaw said this level of support showed the public had a clear vision and wanted to see action.
"It is great to have Porirua and Kapiti working together on the same project and strengthens our appeal to the Minister of Health. "
The petition asks the Minister of Health to develop Kenepuru Hospital and improve the accident and emergency facilities at Paraparaumu.
"Councillor Turver and I would like to thank the collectors and shop owners who are working hard to make the petition a success. We wish to acknowledge particularly the work of elderly people."
"We have set a target of 15,000 and hope that it can be achieved by the end of September close date."
"Anyone else who wants to help is most welcome to join the team and may phone me at home (ph 233 0252)" Councillor Shaw added.
