Listen to 6PR’s Tuart Lakes Radio Broadcast, Perth Live with Oliver Peterson
On Wednesday 6PR radio broadcast Ollie Peterson’s drivetime show Perth Live, right from the Tuart Lakes Clubhouse Lounge.
John Wood and Tuart Lakes Lifestyler Gail Collins chatted live on air with the host about village life and how our lifestyle villages differ from retirement villages.
Gail was just 48 when she moved into the village, “We had a huge house, we only had a son at home, he decided he was leaving, so that was fine so then we decided ok, downsize. And we came here, we drove up that driveway and we just went – YES!”
Lifestylers gathered at the broadcast for a sundowner, they can be heard cheering in support as Ollie asked Gail what she does for fun,
“There’s just so many things. There’s art, there’s cards, there’s Karaoke – that’s MY thing I love the Karaoke.”
It’s no surprise that Gail has fans in the village, because she’s part of a band that recently started up.
“It’s amazing the amount of people that you don’t know much about and then suddenly they’re ‘oh I play guitar!’ ‘Oh I can sing!’ ‘I can I play the drums!’ and we’ve got the most amazing players. So we started up this band and it’s going really well. We join it in with the Karaoke and everyone just has an absolute ball!
