Village Life: The following activities are regulars in the village: bridge, scrabble, weekly Bible Study, monthly communion service, music afternoons, DVD’s shown in the Frailcare on a regular basis, sport on the big screen on a Saturday afternoon.
A great effort is made to ensure special events such as Christmas are indeed special for everyone at Stromboli's, whether resident or in Frailcare - the dining room can accommodate all who wish to be a part of the festivities.
In summer the pool and braai area, Pumba's, is very popular, frequently being the venue for an impromptu residents’ bring and braai.
Being open plan, the lovely gardens are enjoyed by everyone.
A Life Right purchased from Stromboli’s Retirement Village remains in place until no longer required by the the Life Right holder. It then reverts to Stromboli's and is re-sold, based on current market value of the relevant cottage, 20% of the selling price being retained by the village. This capital inflow is designed to stabilize the levy fund and provide for any major capital projects from time to time.
