Villages are planned with privacy in mind
While many Lifestylers love getting involved in the community, there are many who prefer their personal space, in the knowledge that everything is available if they want it.
As such, you’ll be pleased to hear that our homes are designed to make sure you can invite people over and comfortably entertain in the privacy of your own home.

"My goal is to make it to the World Athletics Championship in Toronto in 2020 when I am 86 years old"
I grew up during War Times in East London. It’s hard for kids nowadays to comprehend but in those days because of the World War we had very little food, we had few toys, we had no bikes, but we had a ball which we kicked around in the street. This was my first introduction to sport.
So I guess I was playing Soccer almost from when I was old enough to run around. My Sporting Life really started when I was 13 and playing for Oldfield United FC. As much as I loved Soccer I was a little overweight as a kid and wasn’t the speediest on the pitch. So it was decided that I would be good in Goal. I played well enough to make the 1st team for Oldfield, during which time a scout from my local Club, Millwall FC, watched me and saw enough to invite me to trial with Millwall.
I made the Reserves Team and debuted against the mighty Arsenal in a midweek London competition. During the game it was 0-0 up until injury time when a late goal was scored against us by un unmarked opponent. Being the unpaid Junior I copped the full blame by all my older teammates and subsequently I got a barrelling from the Manager. Upon hearing this after the game, my Mum stormed up to this Manager and collared him giving him both barrels right between the eyes. On the way home she informed me I would never play for Millwall again. Thanks Mum.
"Reminiscing about the 1961 Swan Districts Football Club Premiership"
Reminiscing about the 1961 Swan Districts Football Club Premiership
Swan Districts Football Club had never won a Premiership in the WAFL League Competition. We languished at the bottom end, you could have called us cellar dwellers. However in 1957 the WAFL introduced an extra competitive team into the structure. So now all clubs had a League, Reserves and Thirds team, the last being in the 18-20 years bracket. This enabled the clubs to have access to nurture and improve the football ability of up-and-coming players. Swans were the Thirds competition inaugural Premiers in 1957 and again in 1958 which gave the club a little hope for the future.
In 1960, Haydn Bunton, a South Australian, was elected League Coach. From the outset it was obvious that there would be a massive shake up. The placid Black Swan club emblem was ditched, and replaced by the fierce, black fighting one. Training began in the hot summer months at weekends as well as mid-week. Weekends were up and down sand hills at Scarborough through to Trigg and mid-week around the Swan River, swimming across it, and of course, on the oval. Blood, sweat and plenty of tears!
