Community celebrates official completion in style

Reside Communities $80 million expansion of the Samford Grove retirement village has been celebrated in style with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony and residents lunch.

Local Federal Member for Dickson and Liberal Party Leader Peter Dutton was on hand to do the honours on the project that has delivered more than 100 much-needed new homes for local retirees and a brand-new luxury clubhouse.

Mr Dutton was joined by Bruce and Denise Morcombe of Reside’s charity partner, the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, and Reside Ambassador and leading journalist Kay McGrath.

Longtime Samford resident Olive Gilbey was asked to cut the celebration cake, alongside Reside Communities representatives.

Samford Grove is the only retirement community in the picturesque Samford Village and is now home to more than 160 residents after the extensive 3-year redevelopment.

Reside Communities CEO and Co-Founder Glen Brown said he was delighted to have Mr Dutton along to Samford Grove to meet with residents and cut the ribbon to officially mark the project’s completion,

“Until now, the Samford Valley region has been very limited in terms of new housing options designed specifically for seniors, so the completion of our Samford Grove expansion is a great outcome for local community,” Mr Brown said.

“The overwhelmingly positive feedback we continue to receive from our residents is a testament to what Reside has delivered here and we are extremely proud of the new Samford Grove.”

Mr Dutton said communities such as Samford Grove allowed more people to live their best lives in retirement while enjoying the great lifestyle on offer in the Samford Valley.

“Call me biased, but there’s nowhere in Australia better to live than my electorate of Dickson and Samford has always been one of the most attractive locations within this great region,” he said.

“I congratulate Reside Communities on the completion of Samford Grove and wish all the residents a happy, relaxing and well-earned retirement.”

Acquired by Reside Communities in 2018, the expansion included the addition of more than 100 new villas and townhomes, 12 apartments and The Homestead – a deluxe community centre with café, lounge, bar, cinema, indoor pool, gym, beauty salon, consultation room for visiting practitioners and alfresco barbecue areas and gardens.
