​Senior Citizens Association says concerns being ignored by Government - discontinues newsletters

The Senior Citizens Association says the Government has been ignoring its concerns for years.

Some of the issues the group has been raising include the need for mobility scooter charging points and more benches in the centre of town.

It also describes New Harbours as the most "senior unfriendly" place in Gibraltar and has been requesting that other premises be made available for seniors to pay their rents.

Association President, Manolo Ruiz, says that after years of campaigning he's yet to convince Government of the “needs” of senior citizens and will therefore be discontinuing the group's monthly newsletters.
