NLV is renowned for its world-class resort facilities
Imagine waking up in the morning to soft sunlight spilling through your window. It’s Saturday, which means there is a Tai Chi class in the Clubhouse. You head over, picking up a few friends along the way. After the session, everyone hangs back for a cup of tea, and you find yourself planning your next holiday while you wonder what to do for the rest of the day.
You could join the group gathering on the bowling green ready for some competition bowls. Some spectators are firing up the barbecues, and soon the smell of bacon and eggs will fill the area as breakfast is served to the gathering crowd.Enquire Now

"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.
"I have always loved to dance"
I have always loved to dance.
It still makes me smile to remember when I was about 18, I used to be a Go-go Dancer with Milto and the Beat Girls. We travelled to other countries often (mainly Belgium and Germany) and we were treated like celebrities wherever we danced.
Even when I was a little girl growing up in the Netherlands, I have always been active. I have been working out in the Gym for the past 30 years and was so happy to be able to continue my workout right here at Bridgewater (free of charge too, no Gym Fees!). Since moving here
6 years ago, I have also taken up Tai Chi, Tap Dancing and Lawn Bowls. You wouldn’t believe what a workout Tap Dancing is, I just love it!
Living in the Village has also allowed me to indulge in my other passion with is art, painting and sketching (which I adore doing).
But my story starts last year in Barcelona, when I was sitting having a drink with my sister (who I had treated to a holiday) thinking about what I could do for the Annual Bridgewater Variety Show.
And I’m not sure if it was the Spanish air or the Rioja but I decided I was going to do a Pole Dancing Act as a comedy performance at the Show.
