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

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.

It takes concentration - which improves listening and short term memory skills and it promotes socialization - which is essential for us all to maintain a happy and healthy lifestyle. So for those who like to play bingo, it can be an excellent way to promote mental, emotional, and physical health.

Bingo is played on the 2nd & 4th Friday of every month, so come along & enjoy this activity. 

We send a big thank you to Trevor, Alison & Eileen who organize, set up & provide our prizes. You're the best, take a bow.
