Trevor and Kay Francis were drawn to the vibrant community atmosphere at Riverpoint and are looking forward to moving into their future home as part of Stage 8 at the Estate.
They currently live at Seaford Rise so while the move isn’t far, Trevor says the dilemma will be choosing which Bunnings store to shop at!! They have one close to their current home and one at Noarlunga which isn’t far from Riverpoint – however we think this is a new requirement we will need to consider when building retirement homes in the future!
The couple were among the 100 of you who gathered at the stunning Riverpoint Community Centre to welcome the newest neighbours into Stages 7 and 8 of the development.
These existing and soon-to-be neighbours mingled, while enjoying a delicious and colourful afternoon tea, chatty banter and much laughter. It was a delight to hear.
Trevor said the event was a nice welcome to the Estate.
“It was very well presented and planned; the folk and staff were welcoming, and we met some new residents too – it was a warm and pleasant event,” he said.
“We already know a couple of Riverpoint residents, so it was a nice opportunity to mingle.”
The new Stage 7 & 8 residents then embarked on a tour of the construction site.
There has been much excitement and anticipation (along with some nerves) for those who will be making their move to Riverpoint in the coming months, so they got to talk with the Southern Cross Care staff and the builders. In the main, they chatted about the timings for the completion of both stages and experienced first hand a real sense of progress. They even got the chance to inspect one of the villas and have their photos taken outside of their soon-to-be-home.
The afternoon was organised by our local Retirement Manager, Tracy Hayes, who provided an introduction to social life within the community. The afternoon ended with the new residents touring their section of the village.
