Our Team


We are not part of a large, corporate chain, and we are very proud of this family-owned approach. We take this personal touch through into the management of the village, choosing our staff carefully for both their professionalism and caring approach. Our team will be there if you need us. We respect your privacy and your independence, and will be there to support you if you need it.

Aspiring Village is a registered retirement village, and an audited member of the Retirement Villages Association of New Zealand. This gives our residents extra peace of mind when becoming part of our community.

Directors and Shareholders

The vision for this village started when Peter and Dee Gordon and their friends were talking about the type of retirement lifestyle they aspired to – one where they could continue to be involved in their local community, experience a holiday-type lifestyle and enjoy the company of friends and family. Like many people in this community, they were also aware that hospital care was something that they could not necessarily take for granted, so they knew they wanted to build a hospital on the site to take this worry away.

Aspiring Lifestyle Retirement Village is the culmination of this dream. Peter and Dee have joined forces with co-shareholders – the Anderson, Foster and Armstrong families who have over 80 years combined experience in the retirement village industry.

We would love you to join us as we grow the Aspiring Village family. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to ask anyone on our team.
