Bjorn Again: Bernborough Ascot residents enjoy concert next door

Wednesday, 28 June 2023

A night to remember: Bernborough Ascot residents enjoyed the world’s number one ABBA tribute band, BJORN AGAIN, at the Doomben Racecourse, right next door to their retirement village.

"It was so much fun", resident Barbara Devine mentions, who joined other residents and guests, enjoying first the VIP function, leading to the uplifting and memorable concert event.

‘There is always something going on’

Barbara moved to Bernborough Ascot a couple of years ago, to downsize from her large family home. With 8 children, she needed the space, but since they are all grown up now, she decided it was time for a change. 

‘I came over to Bernborough Ascot a couple of years ago, to have a look and liked what I saw.  I mentioned it to my friend and neighbour at the time, Toni – ‘well I know where I’m going… what about you’.  She joined me!  We have made so many new friends here, who also reach out and check-in with you.’

Barbara's favourite part about living at Bernborough Ascot is the full calendar of resident run social activities, as well as the wellness program at the village. 

‘There is always something going on. Along with my own outside activities and travel adventures, I’m also involved in some of the onsite wellness programs and resident activities.’ These include fitness and cooking classes as well as regular trivia sessions and, of course, happy hour. 

A place where friends and family love to visit

With 8 children and 14 grandchildren, it was also important to Barbara to find a place her family would enjoy visiting as well - and has found that in her new retirement home.

‘Even the 18 year old’s love visiting. One of my grandson’s came over with his friends one afternoon and hung out on my balcony, overlooking the races that were on. We had pizzas and nibblies. They were so grateful and really enjoyed themselves.’
