Easter comes early to Glenhaven

After juggling the ever-changing COVID-19 gathering restrictions for the past year, the Social Sub-Committee at Living Choice Glenhaven decided to hold the village’s Easter Hat Parade a week early, to take advantage of the relaxation in restrictions announced recently. “The residents were itching to get together and have some Easter fun!” said committee member, Shirley York.
Convenor, Dianne Parry, said the last year had been quite a challenge, however she always had a “B Plan” handy in case circumstances changed. “For Australia Day, we had to split the event into two separate areas but for the Easter Hat Parade, all 65 attendees could be seated together.”
Guests enjoyed a delicious Devonshire Tea and also had the opportunity to win some great prizes for the best Easter hats. Everyone really made an effort, with many going to great lengths to impress the judges, Gail Eyres and Namrata Bhandari. Congratulations to the male winners, Jack Stunnell, Bob White and Peter Larkin and to the female winners, Shirley Gibson, Mary Gibbons and her mum, and Betty Chapman. There were also four lucky door prizes.
The Social Sub-Committee is now preparing for the next big village event, the annual Anzac Day commemoration which will be followed by a light dinner.
