Our AGM was held on 14 September and was a fantastic acknowledgement of all Age Concern Nelson Tasman has done and achieved over the past year. The AGM was well attended by over 30 of our members and was followed by a wonderful light lunch.

The Annual Report to the AGM clearly captured the challenges faced by the agency how much the organisation has grown and adapted over the previous year.
