Original residents celebrate 15-year anniversary of Bolton Clarke’s Moreton ​​​​​​​Shores village

Daphne Williams remembered how she and her husband Brian rushed down on a brisk morning in late 2007 to make sure they secured the unit they fell in love with at Bolton Clarke’s Moreton Shores Retire Village at Thornlands, Redland, QLD.

“We were here at 8:15 in the morning to make sure we got the unit that we wanted and to this day we are still really happy with it,” she said.

“At the time, we were starting to look at going into a retirement village after my husband had a stroke.

“From day one, we watched the village progress and grow while the facilities started being built and we got really excited about it all, so when they opened their doors for the first sale we had to be here.”

Fellow original residents (from left) Ivor Worrell, Josie Dougherty, Wilhelmina Van Opstal-Nihot, Audrey Hardy and Josie Matthews joined Brian and Daphne in cutting the anniversary cake.

Moreton Shores had 52 units when it opened and has grown to 155.
