VILLAGE MANAGEMENT UPDATE
Your Village Management team has enjoyed a fabulously relaxing and festive break with Leah and family heading to Busselton to enjoy our great south-west and wonderful weather.
Fiona took up the opportunity of a lifetime to get onto a boat allowed in the inclusion zone on the harbour for the start of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race on Boxing Day, and then headed to Hobart to enjoy Tasmania.
We look forward to hearing your wonderful stories of what residents got up to over the xmas break too now that all village staff are back on board and looking forward to a great 2023.
THE “SCENE” AROUND CHAMPION LAKES
A lovely photo of a group of residents enjoying a day out in Mandurah being chaperoned by Santa himself…….
Staying in the festive spirit, a trip to see the Christmas lights was arranged in mid-December, and the boat ride and fish & chip dinner was highly regarded by those residents who attended. A trip down the canals of Mandurah for the annual specular that encompasses all things Xmas cheer was a lovely way to close out the year. Thanks to Sheila for organising.
Our Village Christmas dinner was then held on 15th December and was extremely well attended. To all residents who supported and assisted bring such a great night to our Village, we say well done and thanks.
And then there were celebrations to bring in the New Year. With roast meat and gravy rolls, cocktails, karaoke and fun to be had we present to you the last ones standing for the evening welcoming in 2023 with much laughter and smiles…….
Wishing you all a brilliant and healthy new year!
