It was with great sadness that we learned of the death of Vera Bolter. Vera was one of the founding members of the Elders Council. For many years she led our work on Health and Social Care, Housing and Older Person Friendly City and represented the Elders Council both locally and nationally. Vera also led the Old Spice drama group, who through their witty and challenging performances raised important issues about the quality of life of older people in the city. Tributes are pouring in from a wide range of people who feel privileged to have worked with Vera over the years.
