focus-on-community-livingThe calendar has been full over the last couple of months at the Harrington Grove Country Club and there are many more events on the horizon for 2010.

The Residents’ Christmas Party which was held at the end of last year was a great success. There was a jumping castle, face painting, BBQ and or course everyone loved swimming and playing tennis at the Country Club’s great facilities. Approximately 120 guests attended the day, including lots of children who were very excited when Santa made an appearance. We would especially like to thank the team from Pollet’s Martial Arts Centre for the great Martial Arts Demonstration which was one of the day’s highlights.

The Australia Day celebrations were also enjoyed by everyone at Harrington Grove Country Club. In true Aussie style there was a BBQ for new residents and their guests, followed by a game of cricket and swimming in the Country Club pool. It was a sweltering summer’s day with lots of fun and laughter and guests took home Australia Day packs which were won as lucky door prizes. The Cocktail Parties have also been very popular and were a wonderful way to welcome our new residents. The last one was held on March 4 and it was great to see so many future neighbours getting together; no doubt the beginnings of some great friendships were started. One of the wonderful features of Harrington Grove is the fantastic people that will be living here.. and of course working here! Harrington Grove is all about community spirit and our cocktail parties mark the beginning of many residents’ events to follow in 2010.

On Sunday 28th March the Easter egg hunt and afternoon tea at the Harrington Grove Country Club were great fun with lots of children participating. The whole family enjoyed an afternoon tea of hot cross buns and the children had a great time looking for eggs in the gardens; although it was a race against the heat before their eggs melted on what was another beautiful sunny day - perfect for outdoor fun and games.
