Four Alexandra residents are very excited to have a change of address this month, when they move into four new units that have opened at Ranui Court Retirement Village in Alexandra this month.
The units were officially opened by Central Otago Mayor Tim Cadogan on Friday 19 May, who noted it was the first official opening he has attended as the Mayor. Tim praised the contribution that Presbyterian Support has made in the local community over many years.
The units are located alongside eight existing Ranui Court units, which have been on the site since 2000. Ranui Court is adjacent to Ranui Enliven care home.
Presbyterian Support Otago owns and manages both facilities. Breen Construction Ltd, a local construction company, managed the construction of the four new units.
The units have fresh modern décor and appliances, with plenty of stage space built into each room. Each unit has underfloor and wall heating, and they are positioned to catch the sun.
Liz Duggan is one of the local residents who is about to move into Ranui Court. Liz has supported Presbyterian Support Otago and the Ranui facility since well before the first units were built.
Liz spoke at the opening and cut the cake alongside Mayor Cadogan.
“This is a very exciting day. After 40 years living in Alexandra I’m really thrilled to be moving into Ranui Court,” said Liz.
“I have supported and watched the development of the previous units and these four units and I am so pleased to be calling Ranui Court my new home.”
Liz and the other three residents are now busy moving into their homes. During the opening ceremony, the four new neighbours excitedly talked over a cup of tea about the many activities they will be able to enjoy together from their new homes.
Presbyterian Support Otago is continuing to consider options and opportunities for future expansion of the Ranui facilities.
