Facelift for seniors village
CLARENCE Village on Queen – formerly the Eureka Care community at 166 Queen St – was on the receiving end of a bit of a facelift on Monday, thanks to community volunteers.
The group of about 20 volunteers, lead by Clarence Village Ltd Chairman Geoff Shepherd descended on the seniors’ rental community where they got to work doing maintenance on some of the buildings and landscaping gardens.
The volunteers were also treated to a barbecue lunch for their hard work courtesy of the village’s on-site managers, Tom and Rhonda O’Hara.
Mr Shepherd said Clarence Village Ltd, which also manages the Clarence Village Units on Turf St and Dougherty Villa, both in Grafton, had taken over management of the facility from Eureka Care from January 1 this year and the facelift work was part of a program aimed at promoting the village’s facilities and services to the community.
