Maisie says she enjoys the company of the other residents and also going to events at the village. ‘You can do as much or as little as you want,’ she says. ‘If our family come we take them down to the restaurant which is lovely. We love living here.’

Meet New Oscott resident, Maisie!

Maisie Skinner starts her day with a visit to the gym at New Oscott Village.

The great grandmother, who is in her eighties, goes every day for about an hour, except on Sundays when she goes to church. She also enjoys line dancing at the village and runs the Christian fellowship group with her 84 year old husband Albert on a Monday evening.

The couple met when Albert was just 16. ‘I was nursing and his mum was in my ward,’ Maisie recalls.

Now a great grandmother, Maisie is the same weight as she was when they married 63 years ago.

‘I really believe in exercise and keeping your weight down,’ she says.

Maisie and Albert ran an aquatic shop for 35 years. They moved into a two bedroomed shared ownership apartment at New Oscott when the village opened in 2010.

The best thing is having the support. We see each other most days. You can argue with a friend and you could never speak to them again but if you argue with a sibling they are still your sibling in the morning. I’m very protective of my brothers.”

Finding this community is the best thing I ever did. The key is perseverance. Even if I don’t feel like going to the gym I go three times a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Gradually I became more able. Now we’re walking all around the perimeter of the village! It's absolutely lovely!
