Good things come to those who wait - and wait they certainly have. On Thursday 13th April, Living Choice Twin Waters residents came together to watch as the 10-year time capsule was dug up.
A large group of residents turned up to watch the village’s first Village Managers, Russ and Lyn Dunstan, along with special guest and former long-term employee, Jane Fisher, escort the village’s first resident, Bobbie Scovell to the event.
Residents’ Committee Chairperson, Ron Boxall thanked everyone for coming and handed the newly dug-up time capsule to Bobbie who carried it into the Leisure Centre. Upon opening the capsule, the contents were displayed beautifully on a table by Robert Airs. They will be available for everyone to enjoy for the next week.
Bobbie gave a lovely speech and thanked Russ, Lyn and Jane, along with June Hurt who used to work as a carer at the village, for attending.
A lovely morning tea was enjoyed by all. A big thank-you to the wonderful ladies in the kitchen.
On Thursday 20th April, the village will celebrate its 20th Anniversary and a large crowd is expected to come along and enjoy the festivities.
