Living Choice Woodcroft’s community spirit was certainly evident on Thursday 8th June when the village residents, deposit holders, clients and Living Choice staff joined Living Choice directors Graham Hobbs and Ian Tregoning, plus VIP visitors Mayor Lorraine Rosenberg and Nat Cook MP, for a “Construction Progress Celebration”.
It was a merry affair, with music by Living Choice Ambassador, Keith Conlon’s jazz band, the Conlon Bailey Groove Diggers, a BBQ and lots of liquid refreshments. The Resident Ambassadors played a huge part in the day’s success, assisting with parking, catering and “manning” the display homes.
Ninety new retirement villas, 18 apartments and the luxury two-storey leisure centre, together valued at more than $50-million, are being added to the village and Mayor Rosenberg congratulated Living Choice on its achievements so far. “I take my hat off to Living Choice and welcome you to the Onkaparinga family.”
State Member for Fisher, Nat Cook, also presented a State flag to the village and it was proudly accepted by the Residents’ Chairman, Doug Tilley.
Living Choice director Ian Tregoning said that since acquiring the village in May 2015, the construction team had made significant improvements to bring it up to the Living Choice standard. “So far, we’ve built 52 new homes, refurbished a number of existing homes and made good progress on the leisure centre. Our 242 residents are greatly looking forward to its opening.
