After your first week of training, you should be feeling fitter and start to build up your distances and beating your times. This week, we focus on general conditioning and building up your overall fitness level and strength ahead of the Harrington Fun Run.

When you first start training, aim for general conditioning training that is mixing up interval running / walking till you can run further and beat previous times and distances. Aim for three to four running / walking sessions each week and other days try and get in some strength or flexibility training – such as a Core & Strength, Extreme30 or Fitcamp.

The first year of the Harrington Grove golf season has drawn to a close with the 2011 Club Championship being played out and won by Scott Granger.

The weekend ended with a presentation back at the Country Club where trophies were presented. Congratulations to Scott Granger for his win over Chris Young in a very exciting final played on 16th October at Camden Lakeside. Both men played well however it was Scott's day, playing excellent golf with a fine short game.

Meet your neighbours

Meet your neighbours

The Vidlers enjoy living at Harrington Grove so much that now three generations of their family are living here.

It was the lifestyle, the great community and the scenic surrounds of Harrington Grove that appealed to Deborah Vidler …as well as being near her family. She is looking forward to meeting new friends and neighbours and seeing the community grow. Whilst awaiting completion of their new home at Maculata, Deborah and husband Max are staying with son Robert and his wife Kim at their Araucaria home. Two streets away, also in Araucaria, live Robert's sister Kristie, her husband Richard Dent and their three children, who recently relocated from Queensland. Not only do the families live within two minutes from each other, they nearly all work together in their business, M & D Plastics Pty Ltd, which is conveniently about to move to nearby Smeaton Grange. "We have really enjoyed the cocktail parties and met quite a few people already. There is a terrific community spirit; my daughter and her family have met people around the pool and my son and son-in-law have both joined the golf club," says Deborah. "We've met lots of people through the golf club, which plays a different golf course once a month. The club has about 20 members of all different standards," says Robert.

The entire Vidler family are enjoying different aspects of living at Harrington Grove however all agree that the sense of community, the Country Club's great facilities and the picturesque setting all add up to a great lifestyle for each generation.

Ecoscape update

Ecoscape update

As Spring is the season of growth and rejuvenation, this is also a great time to review the extensive ecological restoration work being done at Harrington Grove.

Over the past 12 months a lot of work has gone into the restoration of 2 creeks on site, with the planting of over 250,000 plants and trees, extensive weed eradication as well as the Cumberland Plain Woodland regeneration.

You may have noticed the sea of green Grow Bags at Harrington Grove. Each new plant is protected by a Grow Bag to help guard it from animals, weeds and the elements. These bags are reused – in fact the current bags were originally used on the first trees at the bottom of the Creek section. When the plants start to thrive, after about a year, the Grow Bags are removed and then reused on the next of the new plants.

Highway intersection update

Highway intersection update

On the road to success. Harrington Estates is privately funding initiatives to improve safety and reduce congestion.

Harrington Estates is pleased to announce the beginning of work on their new privately funded intersection at Cobbitty Road and Camden Valley Way. Currently there is a lot of bulk earth works underway and the building of retaining walls on Camden Valley Way is also in progress. Additionally the services are being relocated to make way for the road at the intersection. Work is progressing well and the new intersection is expected to be complete by mid 2010.

The objective of this project is to ease the struggle that commuters face turning into Camden Valley Way from Cobbitty Road, especially during peak times. The intersection will involve new traffic lights and a protected right turn lanes.
Additionally Camden Valley Way will be widened from two lanes to four lanes with dual carriageway and the Narellan Road to Cobbitty Road section will be the next stage to be constructed. The aim is to improve safety for motorists and pedestrians and ease congestion.

Meet Harrington Grove’s new community team

Meet Harrington Grove’s new community team

At Harrington Grove a Community Welcome Program is today being established. Tina Green is Harrington Grove’s Community Manager and she will also manage the running of the club and facilities. Working closely with Community Coordinator Lynette Richardson, together they will be responsible for day to day managing of the Country Club, organising community functions, events and social activities at Harrington Grove. Both Tina and Lynette can be contacted at the Country Club and are happy to assist with any queries or information that you may require.

The new program is already taking shape with welcome kits including branded towels, T-shirts, water bottles and bags already waiting for the first residents when they settle. When a similar program was established some 15 years earlier at Harrington Park, it resulted in the creation of a number of social clubs and associations being run by the residents themselves, including the Community Association, Youth, Arts, the Over 55s
and various sporting clubs.

At Harrington Grove we are committed to encouraging and supporting social and recreation initiatives for residents. However, unlike other developments, this assistance and interest will continue long after Harrington Grove is established.

Community spirit is at the heart of Harrington Grove

When the first residents of Harrington Grove move in early next year, not only will they be living in an idyllic location, they will also be planting the first seeds to becoming part of a close knit and evolving community.

The first of the residents have already started to get involved and learn about their new community at a recent cocktail party which was held by Harrington Estates to welcome new residents. The evening was a great success and a tremendous opportunity for residents to meet their future neighbours and forge new friendships. The ‘Welcome Cocktail Parties’ are now a regular event on the Harrington Grove calendar and will be a great chance to learn about some of the many community initiatives which are already in place. One such initiative is the Harrington Grove ‘Mobi-Q’, a purpose built mobile barbeque and trailer, similar to the one used by the Harrington Park community for the past 7 years for street parties and other celebrations - all at absolutely no cost to residents.

On Father’s Day earlier this month Geoff and Susana Woods were officially the first to use the new outdoor barbeque facilities at the Country Club. Taking full advantage of the great new facilities and the fantastic weather we understand that the christening of the barbeque all went well and a thoroughly good time was had by all.

Spring at Harrington Grove

Spring at Harrington Grove

Spring is upon us; that lovely time of year when the weather is starting to get warmer and images of new growth, colourful flowers in full bloom and fresh beginnings all come to mind. As Harrington Grove has over 280 hectares of land preserved in its natural state, Springtime is particularly beautiful and significant on the estate.

During the year many environmental initiatives and extensive conservation and rejuvenation work has been carried out. We have planted over 250,000 new plants and trees and our onsite nursery is nurturing plants that are ordinarily difficult to grow.

Some of the various initiatives carried out include extensive weed control, creek bed stabilisation and work on the prevention of soil erosion. As well as nurturing our beautiful natural environment, the seeds have also been planted for the growth of a wonderful new community which is expected to thrive, with a natural backdrop that is nothing short of breathtaking.

South West Sydney’s Property Industry Gets Together For A Good Cause

South West Sydney’s Property Industry Gets Together For A Good Cause

On Saturday March 13 over 420 people from South West Sydney’s land development and building industry united to raise funds for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) research at a glamorous formal event hosted by the Harrington Estates team at Harrington Grove Country Club. The night was a huge success resulting in a $100,000 cheque being given to the Motor Neurone Disease Association and an additional $75,000 to the Prince of Wales Medical Research Institute. Both groups conduct valuable research into Motor Neurone Disease.

Motor Neurone Disease is the name given to a group of closely related neurological diseases where the nerve cells (neurons) controlling the muscles that enable us to move, speak, breathe and swallow, stop working. MND is a cruel and insidious disease; currently there is no cure and the disease is terminal, usually within 2 – 3 years of diagnosis. One Australian a day dies of this disease. Thus there is an urgent need for more research in order to find a cure.

The night was also highly informative with Mr Graham Opie, CEO of Motor Neurone Disease Association, and Mr Steve Vucic from the Prince of Wales Medical Research Institute, speaking about Motor Neurone Disease and its devastating effects.
