Once upon a time there was a village within a village... Its name was Oakwoods. If you are looking for a combination of independence, privacy and security, Oakwoods Village lifts the burden of many chores, while offering you real freedom of choice: like the freedom to live a richer more comfortable life. In addition to villas, Oakwoods encompasses serviced apartments, a rest home, and hospital with full 24/7 medical assistance available to all residents. Serviced Apartments are for people who want a home of their own but want the security of all services close at hand. These homes have easy access to all facilities and offer that important extra assistance when needed. Oakwoods Village residents participate in trips and events outside the village but wherever they go, it is always nice to come back to the village within the village. The end? No, this was just the beginning... We might not suit everyone, but we might suit you. To view the village at a time that may suit you better call Derryl on 03 543 9746 Check out our new website www.oakwoods.co.nz 5470053AB Chopper crew safer By MATT LAWREY Thanks mate: Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter crewman Hamish Pirie thanks Nelson North Lions Club member Frank Butt for the new life vest. With them, from left, are club member Paul Lunberg and club president Darren Quirk. Photo: MATT LAWREY The crew of the Nel- son Marlborough Rescue Helicopter are feeling safer and look- ing sharper thanks to new vests. The vests come with poc- kets for all the equipment they need and can trans- form into life jackets. The crew now has five of the vests after two were paid for with a donation from The Pelorus Trust and funds raised at Taste Nelson. Another was donated by the Nelson North Lions Club. The $1300 vests have pockets specifically designed for everything from emergency beacons and torches to batteries and pagers. Crewman Hamish Pirie said they were a huge improvement on the life jackets they used to wear. They were a bit bulky and didn t have pockets for the survival gear, he said. Hamish said the chopper spent lots of time flying over water which made the new vests valuable pieces of equipment.
