Malvina Major Retirement Village - Connie Camfield’s 100th Birthday

She’s 100 years old, she loves book club and fitness classes and she only wishes the holiday break was over so she could get back to her university lectures.

Malvina Major Retirement Village resident Connie Camfield turned 100 on February 2nd and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra’s string quartet was there to serenade her – at her request.

Mrs Camfield still lives independently at the village and takes the train into downtown Wellington on Fridays to do her shopping.

She’s a qualified accountant who worked as an auditor into her 80s. As well as book club she attends University of the Third Age lectures and is particularly interested in prison reform and politics.

She decided she’d quite like the NZSO to play at her party after seeing them perform at the village before Christmas – so she went up and asked them to the party.

They said yes.
