How to throw a lifestyle community street party

30 January 2020 | by Halcyon

SHARED BIRTHDAYS AND ENDURING FRIENDSHIPS ARE THE INSPIRATION FOR VISION BY HALCYON’S ANNUAL MEGA STREET PARTY.

Many homeowners moved into the community at around the same time, so there was a group of us looking to connect with neighbours and other people in the community.

Our street parties started by having sundowners at Cockatoo Corner, the nickname we have for the bend in our street.

In the process of getting to know people, we discovered at least seven of us are November babies, which is the genesis of what has now become our annual major street event.

There have been several great nights over ...

Nasho's Reconnect

16 December 2019 | by Halcyon Greens

It’s amazing who you bump into at Halcyon.

Barry Adams and Bruce Midson reignited their friendship at Halcyon Greens more than 50 years after they first met at National Service (‘Nasho’) training in late 1966.

They reconnected after Barry recognised Bruce’s name on the homeowners’ website and wondered if it was his old roommate from the Army’s 1st Recruit Training Battalion (1 RTB) at Kapooka, NSW.

“A few days later, I was down at Happy Hour and I was talking to some of his neighbours, and I asked them what he looked like,” Barry explained. “They said, ‘oh he’s a mad horse man’ ...

A passion for practical makes John a handy man

16 December 2019 | by Halcyon Lakeside

Drop by the Halcyon Lakeside work shed and you’re likely to see John Davis hard at work. He’s been a regular visitor since moving to the community  with wife Jocelyn last year, revealing his passion for DIY and his latest creation, a wooden horse.

“I’ve been good with my hands all my life. I built a dinghy when I  was about 13 years old because  we lived near the water in New Zealand.

My biggest project was when I designed and built a full-size (8.5-metre) yacht, which I named State of the Ark.   Several years ago, I began sculpting and I made a rocking ...
