Perfect Party Planning

Clare Henderson

The Village Redcliffe always has exciting events happening throughout the year thanks to their lively Entertainment Committee.

Clare Henderson has been a member of the committee for over three years now and says she thoroughly enjoys volunteering her time to the committee and planning fun activities to entertain her fellow residents.

“Our goal is to have an event that as many residents as possible can attend and enjoy,” Clare says.

The Village Redcliffe Entertainment Committee consists of Clare and eight like-minded women, who all share a love of entertaining. Their annual Australia Day activities attracted over 150 residents this year and their Coronation Day Morning Tea saw the 225 attendees dress in their very best formal attire – tiaras and all – to watch the historic event take place.

One of the committees most recent events was so successful, they’ve since had residents approach them to ask when it’ll happen again.

“One of our more recent events came from ideas within the committee to hold an Age Appropriate Olympic Games,” Clare says.

“This morning had around 15 fun activities and everybody who took part said that they’d never heard so much laughter in the Dining Room!”

When it comes to organising the perfect event, Clare says the key is careful planning and a shared workload amongst those who are willing to help.

“The perfect event is one where residents and sometimes friends and family, can come along and enjoy the activity, before going home with a smile on their face and looking forward to their next adventure.”
