Each year the residents of the lifestyle village, Boronia Gardens Village and invited guests get together to enjoy a delicious lunch along with a glass of bubbly as they watch the Melbourne Cup.
Everyone was grateful to still have this celebration despite the Melbourne Cup being run to an empty crowd at Flemington Racecourse due to the CoVid restrictions.
There were lots of lucky winners on the day as everyone watched intently to see if their horse was a winner. There were also several other lucky prizes given out on the day.
This is a great example of how the residents at the lifestyle village are able to enjoy functions with large groups of people in the fabulous Monty Matthews Community Centre.
Boronia Gardens Village is all about enjoying a relaxed lifestyle, so it’s no surprise that residents also spend time in the Community Centre watching television, playing board games, cards or indulge in a jigsaw puzzle or a good book.
The full commercial kitchen provides great facilities for regular evening meals as a group. Many residents also take advantage of these facilities and invite friends or family to private functions where everything is spacious and well equipped.
