Edmund Hillary Retirement Village held a different sort of open day on Monday 25 January.
Local clubs: Carlton Cornwall, Kohimarama, Remuera, Glendowie and St Heliers sent two triples teams to enjoy 3 rounds of 8 ends, and delicious and refreshing morning tea, lunch and post play drinks. Carlton Cornwall took the top prize. A resident approached Sales Advisor Becky Gillanders a few years ago and asked her to revive the community tournament after there had been a bit of a gap. The Edmund Hillary Team was formed to join the 5 club teams after Mission Bay Men’s closed.
Edmund Hillary and Ryman Healthcare like to be involved in the community and this is one way of community involvement. It is a fun day out. Club President Mark Compton shared that “The bowling day is special for KBC as we have several club members who are residents at Edmund Hillary…the event is certainly a great reward for the volunteers who undertake management roles using their spare time.”
