Charles Anderson Grove Retirement Village

The Old Colonists’ Association is a philanthropic charitable organisation providing affordable rental accommodation at Charles Anderson Grove for people aged over 65 years since the 1920s. Through the enduring work of the Voluntary Board, and support and assistance from sponsors, the successful expansion of the existing Retirement Village now includes a community centre and multipurpose room. We now seek assistance with future works.

Fifteen new low density independent living units were completed in 2018 to complement 25 established units. Another three units were completed in 2021. Our retirement village boasts 43 units, and houses over forty people in the beautiful setting of Charles Andeson Grove. A community centre and community garden enables social activities to take place in all weathers.
