Residents and staff of Maygrove Village in Orewa had reason to celebrate last month when the village was named Aged Advisor’s top North Island retirement/ lifestyle village.
The award was especially significant, as it was based on independent reviews on the Aged Advisor website. The website features more than 600 facilities and over 4000 independent reviews designed to help people choose a retirement facility.
Maygrove residents were invited to an afternoon tea on August 14 at which Nigel Matthews, Aged Advisor managing director, presented the award to village manager Leonie Knell.
Accepting the award, Leonie thanked the residents for making the village their home. Maygrove has been runners up for this award for the past three years, so it was exciting to finally win.
The village currently has 224 residents and is family owned and operated – part of the Hopper Living group. It has been operating since 2002.
