Positive Ageing Expo 201529 September 2015
Holly Lea Village and The Russley Village joined together to create a very visual display at the 2015 Age Concern “Positive Ageing Expo” held for the 9th year at Papanui High School on 28th September. With over 150 exhibitors ranging from U3A Network Canterbury, Pantone Bakery and More Mobility, to a number of local Retirement Villages, there was something for everyone. Throughout the day an estimated 6000 – 6500 people attended in the 5 hours opening time – all helped by a lovely Canterbury spring day.
A highlight was speaking to those who visited the stand, not aware of Holly Lea’s 100 year plus existence, the availability of apartments, and everyone left very keen to visit the village as a prospective home.
