They say the older generation holds years of wisdom.

And if that is the case, Matamata-Piako is about to become the wisest district in the Waikato.

Over the next three decades the number of retirement-aged people is set to soar. Currently, 18 per cent of the district’s 31,5000 population is over 65 but by 2033 that figure will be 28 per cent of the population.
