Meet our residents
Meryl, Drayton Villas, Queensland
At Drayton Villas Retirement Village in Toowoomba, residents enjoy all the benefits of friendship, community, and a thriving social life.
Meryl said the number and range of activities, and support provided by living among friends are some of the best things about living in the village.
“Retirement provides a chance to just enjoy life now, after you’ve borne the heat of the day, so to speak,” Meryl said. “I’m enjoying life at the moment.”
With a swimming pool, bowling green, a library, table tennis, tennis, croquet green, guest entertainers, community speakers, numerous clubs, groups, and much more available to residents, there is always something to get involved in.
“There’s no need for anyone here to be lonely or bored,” Meryl said. “So much is offered here by way of social activities, sport and events. There’s so much to partake of if you wish, but there’s no pressure. You can be as involved as much as you like, or as little as you like.”
Fellow resident Noreen said the friendly and welcoming community atmosphere is a major aspect of life at the popular village.
“My favorite thing about village life is coming together,” Noreen said. “You just can’t believe the generosity that comes from the people in here.”
“We have a village morning tea once a month,” Noreen added. “It’s really nice to catch up and talk. It’s like a family.”
