The first Logan Campbell residents have moved in!


The very first residents of Ryman Healthcare’s Logan Campbell retirement village have moved in!

New residents Marion and Murray said it was very exciting and just a little overwhelming to be the first.

“We’re so glad to be in!” said Marion.

“We expected it to be beautiful but this is far better than we ever imagined,” added Murray, who in his delight gave Marion an impromptu kiss on the cheek!

The couple spent the night before the big move in their motorhome parked on the driveway of their home just down the road in Royal Oak and arrived bright and early at the Campbell Road village to wait for their removal truck to arrive.

While there were plenty of construction workers around in hard hats and high-vis vests finishing off the rest of the village, the new independent apartment block was a thing of beauty, decorated with wall sculptures and pictures along the hallways and of course their new name plate!


Downsizing their belongings had been the least enjoyable part of the process, said Murray, but the pair were excited to set up their new apartment.

Their daughter Judith and granddaughter Kate had joined them at the village to help with unpacking boxes and there were a few goodies from Ryman to help them on their first day.

Regional Sales and Community Relations Manager Tammy Drinkwater said she was thrilled to welcome Marion and Murray as the first official residents of the new village.

A special gift box, a bouquet of flowers, and a welcome platter were presented to them by sales advisors Lucy Caldwell and Taryn Eagle, and of course there was a ribbon on the door to cut.

Tammy said: “We’re delighted to have Marion and Murray on board and we’re sure they’re going to enjoy their lovely new apartment for many years to come.”
