Safe and Sound

As I write this blog I’m happy to report that there was no major damage to our Central QLD villages (Yeppoon, Capricorn Coast and Rockhampton). More importantly, all our residents are safe and sound.

Our villas and facilities held up extremely well and are a testament to our construction and design teams.

There was some superficial damage as you’d expect with winds packing 250k’s but the main concern is the absence of power with authorities saying up to 2 weeks for it to be restored – we will get priority being a retirement village.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful team in CQ who have not only weathered the storm but provided wonderful support and assistance to all our residents during difficult times. We have excellent insurance and we had assessors on the case first thing Monday following the event to insure that the villages will be back to ‘tip top’ shape in no time.

We also had a lot of rain in Brisbane with our Burpengary Village on the north side receiving over 500mls of rain on Saturday. Once again I’m happy to report the village fared extremely well and coped admirably with the huge amount of water.

All our teams have been busy cleaning and bringing our villages back to their premium condition as I type and we thank all our team for their hard work and taking pride in our villages.
