Grand Opening

On Friday 15 May, Essie Summers Retirement Village was officially reopened after a $20 million rebuild post the 2011 earthquake.

Essie Summers was officially reopened by the daughter of Essie Summers, Elizabeth Jack and Rosemary Deane, Village Manager.

More than 120 guests, residents and staff celebrated the grand opening with bubbles, delicious nibbles and entertainment by the wonderful Dame Malvina Major.

The village formerly known as Beckenham Courts was renamed after Essie Summers, one of New Zealand's most successful romance writers.
