WilliamSanders Village Oct18 1

It’s been an eventful month for the team on site.

The first big news is we now have a name for the village.

Our address will now be William Sanders Retirement Village, 7-37 Ngataringa Road, Devonport.

William Sanders is the only New Zealander to win a Victoria Cross in a naval battle so this village and all the people who work here, and will soon live here, are all honouring the life of one of New Zealand’s bravest and previously lesser known sons.

I think that’s an address to be proud of and for me personally it is a real privilege to be managing the creation of this village.

Secondly, as the size of the team on site is quickly increasing, I have made arrangements for some of our workers to park at the Harbourside Church on Esmonde Road so we can run a park and ride shuttle service.

This will start from Monday October 15th and should reduce quite a few traffic movements to and from the site.

In last month’s communication I mentioned that the site would be shut down for the day on 19th September.

This was so that staff from Ryman’s construction, maintenance, gardening and operations teams plus our key sub-contractors could attend a safety day at Ellerslie Racecourse.

There were some powerful presentations from great speakers and also a few virtual reality exercises which really got people thinking.

It’s all about putting safety first with the phrase being ‘We do it safely or not at all’.

King regards,

Matt Hutchinson
