The Humble Beginnings

I would like to acknowledge that the story of Sirovilla is quite a unique one. It is the story about the great vision and enthusiasm of the CSIRO Social Club led boldly by the late Geoff Watson, gentleman in the photo above.

The story has a rich history and humble beginnings captured beautifully by David EvansĀ  The-Sirovilla-Story

Today is an exciting time with the announcement of Sirovilla taking over the management of another Village. We look forward to providing safe, secure and affordable housing for independent seniors in a community environment similar to our existing villages.

Unfortunately I did not have the pleasure of meeting Geoff but last week I did talk to his wife, Jan. I can genuinely say it was the highlight of my week to share this news with her. I do not know what the long term vision was for Geoff but I’m sure he will be smiling down upon us. I am proud to be part of this step in Sirovilla’s history.

Vicky Chettleburgh,

Manager at Sirovilla.
