On 15th December 2014, the first residents moved into Living Choice Fullarton – three years later, the village has grown into a thriving community comprising 176 residents who are enjoying an enviable lifestyle, crammed with social events and activities.
One of the biggest events of the year is the Residents’ Christmas Party, which doubles as the birthday celebration, and tonight residents will be donning their finery to enjoy a Soiree in the Great Hall. There will be fabulous food prepared by Damien on Fisher Restaurant, lively music and dancing. It promises to be a memorable event – keep an eye out for the photos next week!
Village manager, Angela Trevor, says the village has come a long way since the first residents, Scott and Jean Hutchinson, were handed the keys to their brand new apartment. “There’s an amazing social life here and a constant buzz in the lobby, restaurant and café area with residents, their family members, grandchildren and members of the public all enjoying the facilities.”
Angela is particularly proud of the Wellness Centre, which opened recently. “Eight health, wellness and fitness practitioners have joined forces to ensure both residents and members of the public can achieve optimum health through an integrated approach. It’s a fantastic addition to the local community.”
Angela says the strong sense of community at Fullarton is particularly pleasing. “It’s a caring community and residents look out for each other. They have fully embraced all their opportunities to learn new hobbies, improve their fitness and make new friends.”
