It’s that time special time of the year when the community comes together to celebrate the joy of the festive season. Residents of Bellevue Gardens Retirement Village share a range of seasonal activities guaranteed to get you in the holiday spirit.

Christmas is all about coming together – and in our village, there is no exception. Friends and neighbours spend quality time together, celebrating a warm sense of community throughout the festive season.

This time of year is always the highlight of our social calendar, providing an incredible array of opportunities for residents to get involved. We recently held a Christmas lunch on Thursday 14 December that included live entertainment with a Christmas carol sing-along. Residents enjoyed a four course meal consisting of:

  • Smoked trout blinis
  • Slow roasted pork shoulder with orange and fennel glaze
  • Turkey with cherry cranberry sauce
  • Coconut, mango and pineapple ginger trifle

Sales Professional, Ally O’Shea spoke of her joy in seeing the community come together every Christmas. 

 “I love all the hype and events that are on at the village, it really gets you into the swing of Christmas. Residents have told me they love spending Christmas day at the village because it means they’re not alone and can spend the day with friends. It’s just fantastic to know our village can bring people together to spread the Christmas cheer.”

If you’re looking to escape holiday-fuelled loneliness, and these activities sound enticing, a move to a Stockland Retirement Village could be the best thing for you. Plan ahead and find your new home before next holidays, and for now, surround yourself with family, laughter and joy and make this Christmas all the more merrier.
