Happy birthday Woodcote!

We celebrated our 30th anniversary in style! A kapa haka group, jazz band, two MPs and a Christchurch City Councillor were all on hand to get the party started for the big day.

Local MPs Amy Adams, Megan Woods, and Councillor Jimmy Chen joined with Woodcote residents and staff to mark the occasion.

Woodcote was the first of the Ryman villages. Our family atmosphere and beautiful gardens, along with the care and affection between staff and residents, made it the template for the other villages to follow.

The day included an unveiling of a special plaque and the consumption of a considerable amount of cake!
