THE MORNINGTON RETIREMENT VILLAGE held their Open Day this weekend and RPP FM local radio were invited to join in the fun and entertainment with a live Outside Broadcast from the new RPP FM Van under shady trees, beside the lake.
Presenters of Bowling Around the Peninsula, The Locker Room and Sugar n’ Spice duo Bob Phillips & Judy Banks-Phillips were on-hand to interview The Mornington and the Transport Friendly Society Ltd (TFSL) Management team.
CEO of TFSL, Derek Cafferty spoke live to air on the Sugar n’ Spice program detailing the future changes and renovations to the Club House including improvements to the Day Spa/Massage facilities, a hydrotherapy pool, dance floor, separate dining, a café and bar. The café patio which overlooks the scenic lake will have a fire pit installed and a BBQ area.
“At The Mornington all residents have the freedom to choose the lifestyle that suits them and part of the attraction to the village is the community feel and the activities that bring people together,” said Derek.
TFSL Communcations Manager, Serena Ryan believes being part of a community within the village is paramount to living a happy and longer life adding, “We now provide white caps and attire with The Mornington logo embroidered on them and has been received among the residence with a positive response making them feel part of the village.”
Visitors to The Mornington had the opportunity to meet and greet the residents to discuss the lifestyle, amenities and activities that bring the community together.
Bob & Judy also had the pleasure of interviewing some of the ‘characters’ of the village. Brenda who used to organize the social activities for the residence said there is never a dull moment, there is so much to do and Elaine who laces her chocolates with the odd drop of cointreau or brandy had everyone laughing and Kevin who was the in charge of the sausage sizzle said he loves living here and enjoys the company of his friends.
The well-acclaimed Dolly Sisters sang and danced to the delight of all.
The Open Day offered tours, advice and recommendations for many types of accommodation to suite independent living to those who require a little more care and assistance.
