Local Olympics

-

Navorina Nursing Home staff and residents had their own taste of the Olympics on Friday; sports bingo, a plate toss, dress ups and medals were all present for residents to enjoy.

Navorina put on the special event last to celebrate Peggy Landale’s grandson Jock Landale playing for the Australian Boomers at the Tokyo Olympics.

Activity coordinato­r Bernadette Werner told the Pastoral Times ‘‘the residents absolutely loved it’’.

When we went to press yesterday the Boomers were playing USA in their semifinal.
