Kensington Retirement Village


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.

Sing A Long  

Sing-along, also called community singing or group singing, is an event of singing together at gatherings , less formal than choir singing. One can use a songbook.

Come and join our group on Mondays at 2.30pm for a relaxing and fun time. Singing is uplifting, so good for the heart and soul.

We thank Marion for the time and effort , gathering and compiling the song books. Marion also plays the piano to make it an enjoyable experience for all. 

Happy Hour  

This is held every Friday at 4pm. The weather is improving and the nights are getting longer, yeah for daylight savings. And aren't we all happier when we're spending time with friends? It is well known that laughter and friendship contributing to longevity. Laughter is actually good for your immune system, so they say. ENJOY!

Christmas in July

15 August 2018

We enjoyed the company of Residents, Management, & many guests totalling 76 to dinner. Santa & Mary Christmas paid an early visit to help with the raffle, and Vince kept our toes tapping and many singing along too.

Our meal was most enjoyable capped off with hearty Christmas Pudding and all the trimmings. We hope you all enjoyed our Australian theme as a lovely change, with the decorations coming from around the village gardens.

Thank you all for being part of another happy evening at KRV.
