Ernest Rutherford Retirement Village - Meet Mari and Graham

Hello, our names are Mari and Graham McInroe. We came to Ernest Rutherford when Graham was admitted to the hospital where he received the very best of care to recuperate before moving to the resthome. I got a serviced apartment at Ernest Rutherford four months later and we appreciate being able to be together – this is now our home.

We are both Coasters, I come from Blackball and Graham from Ikamatua. We lived at Rough River, Ikamatua and had a family of four daughters and one son. In 1971 we shifted to the Nayland area of Stoke, for the good schooling. We then shifted to Richmond, where Graham and his partner had an engineering business. After living in Motueka for a few years, we retired to Richmond.

We are very grateful for the help we receive from the wonderful staff and for having such lovely friends and neighbours who are very supportive to each other. We feel lucky to be living in the Ernest Rutherford village, surrounded by such beautiful gardens.
