Wood Glen grows green welcome for new residents

Wood Glen welcomes first resident of The Rise

When residents move into a RetireAustralia village, they don’t just join the village community; they become part of the RA Family. As our way of saying ‘welcome’, Village Managers give new residents a beautiful pot plant, often lovingly cultivated by their soon-to-be neighbours.

Residents at Wood Glen Retirement Village on the Central Coast have enthusiastically embraced this initiative. Margaret Spencer and Hildegard Anstice propagate gorgeous succulents and colourful impatiens from cuttings in their own garden. The beautiful plants are gifted to residents of both Wood Glen and The Rise, new luxury retirement apartments within the village that opened in September.

We’re very grateful for the support and enthusiasm of our communities. We hope our new residents love their green welcome just as much as we enjoy growing them!
