“Tony and I have lived in Coffs Harbour/Sawtell area for 44 years. Our 4 children attended St Augustine’s, Mary Help of Christians, Jetty High and Toormina schools. There was no University in Coffs Harbour and they had to go to Cities after Year 12 for the courses they wanted to pursue.

We were soon on our own. Tony is a lawyer and I opened a Bridal Shop with a friend. After some years I became more involved in volunteer work and still doing that  I played Golf and travelled to Children and Grandchildren. Then found Community Radio!

After several homes from Acreage to High Rise to a beautiful house near the Beach for family to spend time with us… we got over gardens and house chores and thought it was time to move to a Retirement Village.

Having been involved with Marian Grove over the years we knew it was where we wanted to be!  We sold our beautiful house in 5 weeks and were fortunate enough to see the Unit we loved and paid our Deposit over 2 years ago!  How Blessed we feel to live in such a wonderful Village. It has everything but most of all peace, happiness, contentment, friends, love ….and a beautiful Chapel.”
