Welcome to the Elders Council website.  Our special feature this month is:

Celebrations and Budgets

On 19th December 10.30am - 12.30pm don't miss the get-together in the Mile Castle on Westgate Road.  We are planning a festive game of charades and a very special raffle.  Don't miss it.

Getting into the festive spirit has not stopped us from also looking at the serious matter of Newcastle City Council's Budget. Members of the Elders Council joined the Youth Council in attempting the Budget Simulation.  After 2 hours of debate, we very reluctantly reached a balanced budget, but only by cutting back on services which we all regarded as essential. Members of the Elders Council Board met with Council officers to discuss the budget proposals and will be preparing a formal response which will be on our website soon.
