A welcome move
Mary and Bill Burford are delighted that they have moved into Pearl Retirement Resort, and are looking forward to getting to know their neighbours better.
They moved into their villa in March, after residing in the Darwin suburb of Nightcliff for the majority of their lives.
Part of their motivation to move was the need for a low maintenance retirement lifestyle, something Pearl delivers in spades.
“Our house was over 50 years old and needed a lot of maintenance, so to come to Pearl and have a nicely sized garden is great,” Mary said.
“We also like the security of Pearl, which gives us extra comfort to go on holiday (when everything is back to normal).”
“And we can’t fault the site manager Rebecca and the residents, they have been all so warm and inviting.”
The couple are settling in well, and are really looking forward to getting back into the onsite Leisure Centre. In particular Mary is looking to take up some water exercises in the pool, while Bill is keen to play some table tennis and complete the computer connected workshops.
Bill and Mary are also part of a local Probus Club, which holds a range of community events like special lunches and guest speakers.
