Come and 'have a cuppa with Gordon'

Labor Candidate for Robertson Dr Gordon Reid is inviting senior citizens to "have a cuppa with Gordon" in Ettalong from 10:30am to midday on Saturday, April 2.

The morning tea will be held as part of Seniors Week at the Senior Citizens Centre at 5-7 Broken Bay Rd, Ettalong.

State Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch will also be present.

"The Umina Ettalong Branch of the ALP extends a warm invitation to senior citizens and their families and friends to come and have a cuppa with Gordon," said branch secretary Ms Sally Jope.

"This is an opportunity to meet with Dr Gordon Reid, the Labor Candidate for Robertson in the upcoming 2022 Federal Election.

"Dr Gordon Reid grew up in Umina Beach.

"Now working as a doctor at the emergency department of Wyong Hospital, Gordon is and has been serving on the front lines of the pandemic and the healthcare crisis.

"Every day he sees the impact of local GP shortages, the neglect of the healthcare system, of aged care and the pressure on local hospitals.

"Gordon is standing for the seat of Robertson, as he wants to make it an even better place to live, to work and raise a family.

"You will have the opportunity to meet Gordon, ask questions and tell him about your experiences, good and the other, as you grow older here.

"You can tell him about your hopes for the future and ask about Labor's plans."

Bookings are free and should be made online at

With inquiries, phone Ms Jope 0423 198 567.
