Reevedon Retirement Village resident Vicki Webster likes to spend her mornings painting.
Vicki takes up position in her front room, which she has converted into an art studio, and works away on paintings of landscapes, people, and some more abstract pieces.
She says art has always been a part of her life and is a Horowhenua Arts Society committee member.
Enliven’s Reevedon Village features 29 one and two bedroom villas and offers calm and quiet living just a stone’s throw away from central Levin.
Vicki has been at the village just over a year, and says she is glad to be there.
“It’s very relaxing, its quiet, which is the main reason for me moving to Reevedon – to find some peace and quiet.”
She says her neighbours are lovely and living at the village can be as social as you want it to be.
Having lived in Levin for about 47 years, she had plenty of visitors come and check the place out when she moved in.
“When I first moved in, all these people I knew wanted to come have a look and they were all very impressed.”
