Woodcote Retirement Village 25th Birthday Celebrations 

The 25th of October presented with a dull and dreary looking day with the wind posing a potential hazard for our special day.

However in true Woodcote spirit these variables did nothing to dampen the spirit of our staff and residents. Following a blessing by Mr Henare Edwards, Margaret welcomed all before speaking fondly of our journey over the past 25 years and acknowledging the longevity and commitment of staff at Woodcote.

This was reiterated by David Kerr (Chairman of the Ryman Healthcare board) who went on to acknowledge Sharyn Ward for being the very first Ryman staff member to achieve the National Certificate through the ACE training programme.

Our special guest the lovely Dame Malvina Major was delighted to find she had some golfing friends here.

Two of our residents were recognised for their long standing residency at the village, Leo van De Langenberg who has resided in his serviced apartment for 20 years and Nancy Walker from the resthome for 10 years. Senior Caregiver, Gloria Gates was also recognised for her 25 years service to Woodcote.
