Resthaven residents enjoyed a wander down memory lane just before Christmas when members of the Veteran and Vintage Car Club (Waikato) showed up to take them on a variety of rides.
Committee member Andy Hammond said the club’s local branch had been visiting Resthaven each month for some time, but had decided to make a little more of the December visit over the past couple of years.
“I had been wondering what we could do to make Christmas a little special for the residents here, particularly as it a wholly community-owned rest home. With the support of our members, we now visit just before Christmas and take the residents for a short ride around the village,” he said. “We spend only an hour or so at Resthaven, but we love it and so do the residents. Then we all head off to the Five Stags for our Christmas lunch.”
The Waikato branch of the VCC has about 800 members around the region.
The local branch will hold an open day on February 25 at the Cambridge club rooms in Maclean St.
