Funnies of the Month

Welcome to the Champion Community

This month we welcome new residents Tom and Jackie to their forever home at our Village. Thanks again to Sheila for undertaking the meet and greet to allow us all at the Village to be introduced to this lovely couple.

Tom and Jackie – Lot 62

Tom and Jackie Watson at Lot 62 are joined by their unusual black teacup poodle called George who manages to get around the village on 3 legs, a little marvel!! He was initially quite shy when he came into the village but as he day passes he becomes more familiar to his new surrounds filled with friendly neighbours and happy pooches.

They have been married for 35 years but in Tom’s words “Jackie has been lucky enough to be with me since she was 16!!!”.
They have 3 children, Katie, Jane and David. The girls are married and live in Perth while David lives in Melbourne and was recently married only earlier this year. Tom and Jackie have 5 grandchildren who they see regularly.

They are currently the youngest couple in the village. Tom underwent a back operation last year and was finding it increasingly difficult to maintain a large garden and property. Tom and Jackie decided it was time to downsize.

They like the overall outlook of the village, the pet policy and the friendliness of their neighbours. Tom is busy organising their forever home and garden including a vertical garden design feature. Jackie is noted for her talent in crafts and is already involved in the pottery group in the village.

Welcome to you both.

Social Scoop – Melbourne Cup

Melbourne Cup celebrations were a great success at the Village with 50 race goers enjoying a fabulous lunch. Special thanks to Kay, Judy, Rosie, Sheila and Chris for co-ordinating the event. Les thank you also for running the sweep stake.

An additional special thank you must go to Byford Country Club for their generous donation of dinner vouchers won by very grateful winners Denise and Ron along with Archie and Jo.

Sweepstake winners Kev and Margaret took out 1st place, with Sue our village cleaner taking out 2nd & Suzette and Dave placed 3rd. Two days later the village remains alive with stories of what a wonderful day was had by so many.

More Social Scoop

Tuesday 26th October saw our residents jump on the pre-arranged party bus off to Duckstein Brewery to enjoy an entertaining day with friendly neighbours to celebrate Oktoberfest.

Whilst the weather was overcast with a chill that hit the bones, a few steins over lunch kept the crowd warm and toasty. The very pleasant and merry outing was made possible through Rob from SCI

We are excited to finally be offering our residents exclusive NBN Plans through Think Data. By purchasing data in bulk for our community, Think Data is able to provide cheaper rates, faster speeds and onsite customer service far superior to other providers such as Telstra and TPG.
