Peter and Jan Delaney have been married for more than 50 years and have two children and two grandchildren.
They moved into Waverley Country Club in 2016 after waiting some time for a home to become available. They were keen to join many friends already living in the village
Peter retired after 50 years of working in executive roles in the general insurance industry, but still leads a busy life with multiple roles he plays across various organisations and clubs. He was Board Chairman until his recent retirement of the nearby Mulgrave Country Club - a community based not-for-profit sporting & social club - as well as the Fire Marshall in our Waverley village.
Jan isn’t quite ready to retire yet. She’s the Regional Customer Care Manager for McDonald's, looking after 35 stores in metropolitan Melbourne.
‘I love the resort-style living, great villa and security that Waverley Country Club offers.’
On top of their formal commitments, Peter and Jan love leading an active lifestyle. They take a daily 2-3 km walk around the village and walking tracks and enjoy weekly Friday drinks with neighbours.
And they can choose to join many of the clubs and activities in the village, including:
water aerobics in the heated pool
music and singing groups
movie and theatre evenings.
Plus, a great bar and coffee lounge for social get-togethers!
‘I love the resort-style living, great villa and security that Waverley Country Club offers,’ says Peter. ‘The gated community and well-lit roads give a high level of security and wellbeing.’
Peter and Jan have also grown fond of the village team at Waverley Country Club. ‘They’re very customer-focused staff here. Nothing is too much trouble.’
The overall community feel is a highlight of the village. And Peter and Jan have enjoyed meeting people who share the same lifestyle aspirations as they do.
