Kiri Te Kanawa Retirement Village - Meet Jenny & Bill

Hello, my name is Jenny Gardner. I think I’m lucky to be living in an apartment in such a lovely village like Kiri Te Kanawa. Starting each day with a stunning view is so good for the soul. Then I’m off to the pool downstairs to kick start my day.

Kiri Te Kanawa Retirement Village - Meet Jenny & Bill

Hello, my name is Jenny Gardner. I think I’m lucky to be living in an apartment in such a lovely village like Kiri Te Kanawa. Starting each day with a stunning view is so good for the soul. Then I’m off to the pool downstairs to kick start my day.

I came to New Zealand to visit my sister and met and married Bill. We have grown grapes, boysenberries, had a shop at Tolaga Bay, a few trips overseas and have three children and four grandchildren.

We decided to move to Kiri Te Kanawa when our big garden and outdoor pool got to be a burden rather than a pleasure. After only a few weeks together in our lovely apartment with its fabulous view, Bill needed to move downstairs to the care centre. I see Bill every day and often take him home for a whiskey - and I can visit him in my bedroom slippers if I want!

I run the shop in the village, and have new friends here. I have the luxury of doing exactly what I like, knowing Bill is well looked after. I am part of a group of residents here who have been enjoying the free concerts in the park, followed by a meal out together afterwards, because it is just so easy to organise.
