Mid Winter Dinner

07 August 2019

Residents  and guests braved the winter chill to dine & dance at our winter solstice evening. There was  much talking and laugher , maybe encouraged a little bit by some home brewed mulled wine for those who were keen to try it! Our caterers were spot on, as always serving a piping hot, freshly cooked and very generous roast and the desserts were extra yummy. The raffles were well supported, with many happy winners.  

Sing for Joy

07 August 2019

Anyone who loves to sing will probably tell you how good it makes them feel. It’s no secret that singing reduces stress, improves your mood, and generally brings more fun into your day. There are many different physical, emotional, social, and psychological benefits associated with singing. Our singing group meet on Monday at  2.30pm & is conducted by our lovely Marion on keyboard. Singing is so good for the soul.  

Winter Bowls at K.R.V

17 July 2019

Our bowls team off to the inter-village winter competition. 

The team gave it their best shot, but did not bring home the trophy this year.

A season of fun, laughter & companionship was enjoyed by all the participating villages. 

Until next season, keep smiling and may tour bowls find the kitty! 

Hot Cross Buns & Morning Tea

08 May 2019

Forty-five residents along with some of their children, grand and great grand children enjoyed getting together for a morning tea of hot cross buns on Good Friday. The total amount donated  on the morning was $393.80 and a cheque for this amount has been forwarded to the Royal Childrens’ Hospital Good Friday Appeal. We might only be a small village but we have a big heart!    Thanks to all who so generously donated. 

Following the morning tea the Easter Egg hunt brought big smiles to the littlies (and a few biggies too!) as they fossicked outside in the gardens to fill their baskets. The morning ended with the hat parade; this saw some very creative hats, with chickens and Easter eggs featuring the most but there were also some pretty bows and flowers. The amused residents looking on relished the task of judging the ad hoc. Another fun day at our village.   

K.R.V Australia Day Celebration

01 February 2019

This was a fabulous day in the BBQ area, with the weather being extremely pleasant, many residents dressing for the occasion and joining in the fun/games/jokes and eating of course. The cooks being Trevor, Terry & Ken made sure everyone had their meat/chicken/lamb & sausages cooked to perfection. We enjoyed delightful salads and desserts supplied by the residents to share. The drinks were flowing well and we were all delighted to only have a short walk home!! A big thank you to all who helped setup, decorate, clean up and take down the gazebos etc. without all of you these events would not happen.
