Around 10,000 of Waimakariri electorate’s senior citizens have been invited to have a cuppa with their local MP over the past year.
Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey held his last Super Seniors coffee morning for the year in West Eyreton on Monday. Doocey said around 10,000 invitations had gone out over the past year to seniors living in every corner of the electorate to meet with him for an informal cuppa and chat.
Doocey said he valued these sessions and the viewpoints put forward. The biggest challenge that had come up over the year, he said, was trying to close the meetings within the time frame. Every meeting had run well over, he laughed.
