It was Helen and Brian's friend who first showed them a brochure of Everil Orr village. They’d been looking for a while for a place closer to their son in Auckland.
To find something within their price range that ticked the right boxes seemed a difficult challenge, especially when they were leaving a home with wonderful sea views.
“We walked in here,” as he smiles and sweeps his arm around the wide open space of the community centre, with its panoramic views of the upper Waitemata, ”and we felt we’d found the place. And it’s small enough that you know everyone’s name.”
The family is pleased too. “Our son told us how he ran past our place the other day, but didn’t drop in cos he was too sweaty.” It’s a whole lot easier to see mum and dad when they’re a short jog away than a 2 1/2 hour drive.
