AWARD winning over 50’s community Seachange Village Arundel has unveiled its new village green, designed to provide the community with an open air meeting place where residents can celebrate public events or indulge in physical, social or spiritual activities.
The village green has been planned to facilitate and respect the ways in which residents experience and use the area with friends and family.
It features an intimate Zen garden for meditation, yoga and Tai Chi, allowing the residents to nourish their mind, body and soul; a community pavilion for intimate private or social gatherings; two separate BBQ areas for social family or community gatherings; a community garden for green fingered residents; large grassed areas for recreation, exercise and the grandchildren to play; a state of the art wellness room; and sparkling pool.
Seachange Village Arundel Project Director Phil Goodman officially launched the facility at a free community event for both residents and guests on February 12. The launch featured well-known local entertainers the Two Tenors and the community’s local choir the Seachange Songbirds.
Local councillors William Owen-Jones and Rob Molhoek MP were guest speakers at the event.
“I had the pleasure of being part of the Council that approved the development of Seachange and it is great to see how the Village has evolved over the past few years and the sense of community that has emerged,” Mr Molhoek said.
“The village green is a wonderful place for residents of Seachange Village Arundel to meet, relax and socialise,” Mr Goodman said.
“They can read a book, practice yoga, share a Sunday picnic with their neighbours or enjoy an invigorating dip in the sparkling new pool.
“The new facilities will help residents stay active, healthy and engaged and enjoy a vibrant lifestyle at Seachange Village Arundel.”
Mr Goodman stated the village green was driven from a desire from residents for more open space and areas for intimate social gathering with family and friends.
“The Village Green will compliment the already exceptional facilities available, which includes our 5-star country club,” he said.
