Belvidere retirement village photo gallery
Welcome to our photo gallery where we are constantly adding photos taken by our residents or external photographers at our many and various events. We have a buzzing community, and a well organised events committee managed by volunteering Belvidere residents to make life fun and exciting with always something new to attend. There is never a dull moment at Belvidere!
Don’t for one minute think that an acclaimed, world famous “cook-off competition” is reserved for celebrities & TV shows. Right here in our very own dining room at Belvidere Park Retirement Village, on Friday the 16th November, we hosted our very own “cook-off” between the management committee and the activities committee.
Spring Fever Garden Party 2018
The Spring Fever really took off this year as the wind blew the tables cloths up into the air and the hats off the guests yet nothing stopped the residents get their dancing shoes on, the vocals lubricated and their party tricks practised. Thank you to all involved for a magnificent start to Spring and a special thank you to the prizes donated by The German Shop, Penhill Nursery and Bucky Brill!
Christmas in July
A magnificent turn-out as everyone dressed up in their woollies for a crisp Winter’s day to enjoy yet another July Christmas as we so happily celebrate every year at Belvidere as one of most popular social activities especially for those residents from Europe who are used to cold Christmases. Thanks to all the efforts of the staff, the decor and the Christmas lunch were outstanding!
On the 1st June our themed dinner was every Italy. From the food to the decor, the prizes and the dress code. We absolutely know how to have fun here in Belvidere. Grazie Miele to all involved!
Mother’s Day 2018
As always we love to treat all the ladies on this special day to celebrate all the Mother’s at Belvidere. Thanks to all the volunteers who put in an enormous effort on this public holiday to decorate the tables so beautifully and provide an outstanding lunch for us all on Mothers Day.
Belvidere Quizz night and 100 Club
Yet another raucous and fun event. Our Quizz night and 100 Club this month had an excellent turnout. Well done to the winning team! Thank you for all the fun and laughter and thumbs up to the organisers!
Belvidere residents go boating on Knysna Lagoon
Thanks to Gem Morton (Our Belvidere Chairman) and skipper for the day, we got to feel the wind in our hair boating on Knysna Lagoon – never a dull moment for us. Thank you Gem!
An absolute HIT – St Patrick’s night at Belvidere
The residents of Belvidere Park celebrated St Patricks on Friday with a fun evening in many varieties of green attire, Irish music, steak and Guinness Pie with Irish Colcannon (potatoe & cabbage dish). The Belvidere resident organisers went “all out” with the table decor of shamrocks, Irish flags, green & orange candles and beautiful matching flowers. Coupled off with a lucky draw and ending with chocolate brownies & peppermint liqueur fondant has left us all with smiles and happy memories for one and all.
