It was 50 years ago when our first retirement living village was opened. Today our bustling retirement home is a community-driven village with residents contributing to its lively demeanour in Norwood, Tasmania.
Regis Retirement Living Norwood celebrated its 50th Anniversary on Saturday 20 November with pomp and pageantry with residents, friends, family and employees. The retirement village has a colourful past, having gone through a few name changes over the years. Our residents who attended the event have lived in our beautiful village community between 14 and 18 years.
The event was graced by Rosemary Armitage MLC, Independent Member for Launceston who gave a heartfelt speech congratulating Regis on the anniversary.
A local tenor added to the splendour, delighting the guests with beautiful music for everyone to enjoy. We also had a cake cutting to commemorate the 50th anniversary by Vera Sutton and Joy Britton, the longest staying residents at the village which was a real highlight of the day.
“The event was a wonderful culmination of all that Norwood Village has to offer; very happy people living the lifestyle of their choice,” said Nadine Lister, National General Manager of Retirement Living at Regis.
Regis Norwood Retirement Living gives our residents the opportunity to embrace old passions, discover new interests, and be part of our welcoming community. It is located close to the tranquil Punchbowl Reserve, offering a peaceful place to relax and socialise with our community. Situated in the Launceston suburb of Norwood, the village has 33 beautiful self-contained one-bedroom units and a handful of two-bedroom units.
