Alloura Waters is a Living Choice retirement village located at Davistown on the beautiful Central Coast of New South Wales.
A Brief History and General Overview
In 1988 Alloura Waters Pty Limited purchased, from the Davistown RSL Club, the land on which the village now stands. Stage 1 of the village welcomed its first residents in May 1991.
Between 1990 and 1996 the company built nearly seven stages of the village and new owners, Central Coast Retirement, (later renamed Living Choice Australia) finished off Stage 7 and built the remaining four stages, the Waterfront Apartments being the last stage finished in 2002. Today our village has 200 apartments/villas and nearly 300 residents.
The original owner of the village encouraged residents to be involved in the running of the village so that today we have an elected Residents’ Committee with eight sub-committees – Community Centre, Finance, Garden, Hospitality, Library, Travel, Social and Works. We also have many activity groups such as Art, Cards, Computer, Craft, Mah Jong, Quilting, Music, Snooker, Workshop, Indoor Bowls, etc. A residents’ Forum meeting is held once a month where residents can ask questions or express views. The village has a well-stocked Library which is kept up-to-date by the purchase of the latest books. Many residents also donate books to the Library. There is also an extensive DVD library containing some of the latest movies from which residents can borrow for viewing in their own homes.
In November 2000 a new Community Centre was opened. An indoor heated pool and spa was included in the new Centre.
The village has a monthly news letter – Alloura Waters And Residents Events (AWARE) which keeps residents in touch with what is happening in the village. There is also a dedicated television channel which residents can use to see what events are planned.
There is an aluminium dinghy with a small outboard motor which can be used by residents for fishing/trips on Brisbane Water. No special boating license is required.
The Social Sub-Committee organises many events for residents during the year; monthly dinners and barbecues, celebrations of Australia Day, Anzac Day and Melbourne Cup, concerts, fashion parades, monthly films and special events such as Yuletide and Bastille Day.
The village has a staff of gardeners, a handyman, office workers and a Nurses and Carers group who provide a 24 hour/7 day service to residents. Each residence is equipped with several emergency buttons strategically placed in villas and apartments which, when pushed, summon a nurse or carer within minutes.
