Life begins at Halcyon

Life begins at 50

Jan and Terry open up about Halcyon Glades

09 February 2018 | by Halcyon

Home owners Jan and Terry Tysoe will be rolling out the welcome mat and sharing Halcyon Glades with the public when the over 50’s lifestyle community throws open its gates on Saturday, February 17.
While Jan will be busy meeting and greeting visitors in Halcyon Glades’ display homes, keen sportsman Terry will be on the championship-sized bowling green to demonstrate how he’s making the most of his Halcyon Days.

“I really enjoy the open days because I’ve got a big sales background and love talking to people,” Terry said.

“When you finish work you feel like you’ve lost something, so Halcyon is a great social outlet for my personality and background.”

Jan said the open day was a wonderful opportunity to show prospective home owners what Halcyon Glades was all about.

“We have a great sense of pride in our community,” she said.
“A lot of people come in and say ‘wow’.

“There’s been quite a few times that I’ve actually shown people through our own home as it’s the Grand Belleview design and a bit bigger than the Belleview display, so by looking through our place they can see what the upgrade looks like.

“And everybody loves the Rec Club, and they often ask what other things they can do in the community.”
Jan and Terry have lived at Halcyon Glades for almost three years and love spreading the word about their very social, active, flexible and secure lifestyle.

Their enthusiasm is contagious, with two of their friends following them into the community and another friend now living at Halcyon Lakeside on the Sunshine Coast.

Terry, an active golfer, competitive bowler and ‘gym junkie’, said the Halcyon lifestyle gave him security, freedom and choice.

“In a place like this you feel totally secure; it’s gated, there’s surveillance cameras and we’ve got each other – and there’s security in numbers as they say,” he said.

“It’s low maintenance and easy to go on holidays because you haven’t got a big property to look after. Your neighbours can keep an eye on your garden for you, and you can go away for months at a time and everything’s fine.

“And it suits all types of personalities. If you’re a person who is really outgoing, you can mix in. If you like a bit of your own time, you can do that. Or if you’re a person who wants to do their own things, that’s okay too.

“Halcyon gives you a lot of options and that’s what I like about it.”

Jan said the couple had made some good friends and enjoyed regular get-togethers with a group of 8 to 10 couples.

“On the first Saturday night of the month, we all do something together,” she said.

“Last time, we all brought a hot dish to the Rec Club for dinner and then we watched a movie in the cinema with popcorn, Jaffas and a few drinks of Baileys. It’s great to be able to do that without having to drive anywhere.”

The Halcyon Glades Open Day is on Saturday, February 17, from 10am until 1pm. Register here:
