Seniors flock to Glenhaven’s travel expo

Living Choice Glenhaven residents and clients were keen to explore the latest travel destinations at the Seniors’ Travel & Cruise Expo held at the village on Saturday 4th November.

From the time the doors opened at 10am to closing time at 2pm, there was a steady stream of visitors and the 14 exhibitors were kept busy answering questions and providing information on a wide variety of tours and cruises.

Once again, the Resident Ambassadors stepped in to help, manning the welcome desk and serving tea, coffee, sandwiches, cakes and biscuits. Resident helpers also helped the exhibitors to offload and pack up and ferried expo visitors to and from their cars in the village’s buggy.

A Residents’ Travel Photo Competition was also held with Carmel Ascough winning the Most Memorable category with her photo of the QE2, Vern Wilkinson winning Most Quirky with her comical photo of the Hilton Hotel in Venice and Lorraine Race winning Best View with her beautiful photo of Lake Garda in Italy.

The expo was organised by Living Choice and Louise McCarthy and Michelle Desmarchelier of Travel Managers and featured exhibitors, Princess Cruises, Scenic Cruises, Silversea, Albatross Tours, Trafalgar, Globus, Freestyle Holidays, Chimu Adventures, Grand Pacific Tours, Wild Earth Travel, Holland America Line, Bunnik Tours, Back-Roads Touring Co and The Africa Safari Co.
