Justice of the Peace Service Centres
These centres used to be known as JP Clinics, currently there are 14 of them serving the wider Western Bays area. Each of these Centres is open for 2 hours or so per week to enable members of the public to drop by for any service that can be performed by a JP.

SAVING  SPECTACLES
Don't throw your old glasses away!
Spec Savers in Devonport  Rd  are now saving your old glasses - they collect them then pass them on to the Greerton Lions Club.
They in turn gather them up then send them to Auckland where they are cleaned and indexed. Then  N.Z. optomotrists take them to the Paicfic Islands where they can be passed on to those in need. The glasses you no  longer require may well be exactly what the visiting optomotrists has
prescribed. This is an on going project. Old glasses are welcomed at Spec Savers or any member of the  Greerton Lions Club.

Donate $4 to The 4 good charitable trust and 100% of your monthly donation will go to the charity of choice for the month. Sign up and donate your $4 now at 4good.org.nz
We love helping out NZ charities, but sometimes it's hard to choose who to help. That's why we created 4good. With a new charity every month it's easy to spread the love! Get amongst it at www.4good.org.nz
