On 5 August our Village Manager, Bruce Cullington, hosted a celebration-lunch for all our residents over 90.
Our latest nonagenarian’s population has grown, and it was amazing to see how well they are all doing. Our lovely guests were spoilt with gifts from Acacia Cove and the Residents’ Committee.
It was an afternoon filled with laughter, reminisces and a lovely two course meal.
As you probably know, the latest addition to our lovely Village, five brand new apartments, were completed last month.
However, here at Acacia Cove we like to keep thinks interesting, so we decided to build two new Villas.
Construction on these started recently, and if all goes well, it should be completed before the end of the year.
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have kicked off their week-long tour of New Zealand.
Yesterday their royal highnesses began the day by laying a wreath at the Mount Roskill War Memorial Park in honour of fallen Niuean soldiers.
