TODAY IS ... PLUM PUDDING DAY

Posted in 'Resident Events, Village Events' on February 12, 2016
Plum Pudding Day is dedicated to a mouthwatering treat that,
surprisingly enough, contains no plums! In the 17th century when it was
first created, plums were referred to as raisins or any other type of dried fruits.

We really enjoyed our Plum Pudd at our Christmas Dinner!

Tranquil Theatregoers 'Cats' Today we are going to see one of the greatest musicals of all time: 'CATS' at the Lyric Theatre. Based on T.S. Eliot's' Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats', the show is alive with highly entertaining feline characters and wonderful witty verse.

Featuring a fantastical set, a magnificent score including the poignant hit song 'Memory', dazzling choreography, and stunning costumes, CATS is a brilliant song and dance spectacular! It is sure to be a 'purr-fectly' amazing outing!

COCKTAILS FOR CAROLLERS

Posted in 'Resident Events, Village Events' on February 7, 2016

Remember in December, how the Tranquil Troubadours sang their way round the village singing Christmas Carols? Well a big thank you is much needed to Bob S for the refreshing Brandy Alexanders he served the 'parched Carollers'. The drinks were much appreciated, thanks Bob!

Cedar Creek Estate

Today we are having our first coach tour for the year and one that will surely be most enjoyable as we will be travelling to Mt Tamborine. As this is not a long journey, we will have morning tea at the Botanic Gardens with time to stroll around and admire the gardens. We will then proceed to Cedar Creek Estate for a tour of the Glow Worm Caves and lunch, with a chance to do a little retail therapy after lunch at Gallery Walk. The one up very reasonable cost includes the enjoyable coach ride, delectable morning tea, delicious lunch and amazing tours.

A BIG THANK YOU

Posted in 'Resident Events, Village Events' on January 31, 2016
A month ago today (wow didn't that go fast - especially where all the New Years resolutions were concerned!) we would like to say a big thank you to all people who helped with the New Year's Eve party.

The girls and boys who set up and blew up balloons, the helpers in the kitchen and last, but not least (maybe the best) the boys on the barbecue and bar.

Also, it wouldn't be a party without all the residents who came to enjoy themselves, with many of them staying to help clean up!
