This week was Social Tuesday, and we went for a visit to the new Charles Brownlow retirement village in South Valley Road Highton.
How appropriate to name the village after one of Geelong’s favorite sons
What a beautiful place, it is a Ryman Healthcare property and they made us all very welcome while showing us around.
The centre has been open for 2 years and the last stage is nearly finished. Lovely 2-bedroom home, independent living apartments and then medium and high-level care.
So, something for everyone.

The residents are all involved with knitting Yuri bears for children in Ukraine.

An inhouse Men Shed, craft rooms, library, gym, hairdresser, and a bar that opens for happy hour on a Thursday, what a good idea, and of course a pool.
The target is 20,000 bears.
Many of our team took the pattern to see how many we can knit, if you didn’t pick up the pattern, let me know and will send.

After our tour we all went to the Cicina restaurant in Hight St Belmont, always a popular place to eat and so good to take the time to sit and chat.
