Yanchep Two Rocks Fluoride Free group to hold community meeting

A MEETING to discuss water fluoridation will take place in Yanchep this Sunday.

At Monday’s Two Rocks Yanchep Residents Association meeting, Melanie Waldron, who is part of the Yanchep Two Rocks Fluoride Free group, said the December 4 meeting would be at the Local Surf Shed from 10.30am.

She said there needed to be more discussion about water fluoridation and it was wrong that people were not given a choice about “mass medication”.

TRYRA president Peter Wimsett said the matter had been discussed at previous meetings, and once Yanchep was connected to the main municipal water supply, it would have fluoridated water.

In September, the Department of Health announced Yanchep would receive fluoridated water from 2017.
