Welcome to 2018
Happy New Year to everyone! I hope that Christmas was a very special time for you and that you were able to share in the joy of the season.
There were several wonderful Christmas celebrations at the village and we had excellent attendance at each one.It was also lovely to see so many gorgeous Christmas decorations on show in residents’ homes and gardens and it gave the village a very special Christmas feeling
2018 will be a very exciting one for Barwarre Gardens as we look toward the commencement of construction of the Phase 2 development at the village with civil works starting in late January.
There has been huge interest in the new development which has resulted in all 29 units in Stage 5 being sold in 6 weeks; a remarkable result and one which confirms the high regard in which the village is held within the community. There have aslo been 6 Expressions of Interest placed on Stage 6 units; these will not be completed until December 2019.
The "Mens Shed/ Workshop" will be officially opened in early 2018. This will be great news for all those who have particiapted in its planning and also for all those residents who look forward to the time they can utilise the facilities offered in this geat addition to the village.
We continue to see constant improvements made around the village ranging from new additions to the garden in the Piazza to extra seating around the outside of the Community Centre so you can enjoy a "cuppa" or read the paper in the sunshine.
I made mentiom in the last newsletter of the MG car display so I would like to thank the members of the Geelong MG Car Club for generously offering to show their beautiful vehicles here at the village; it was much appreciated by all. I have included some photos of that event.
I have many wondeful events planned for this year which I do hope you are able to attend.In particular, please make a special note of our next big Open Day on March 3.
