Ian and Evelyn Hepburn

Evelyn and Ian Hepburn are the oldest residents La Récolte, having moved in on 22/08/2017. This devoted couple is would describe as warm, positive and easy to talk to.

In the Spotlight:

Why did you decide to Retire at La Récolte?

Realizing that we are not getting any younger and got tired of maintaining a house, cutting the lawn etc., we thought of looking for a lock up and go retirement village.

We saw the banners flying when La Récolte was being promoted, made inquiries and bought our regrets!

We would like to know about you life before retirement.

We have been married for 53 years and dated for 5 years before that.

Before retiring, Ian worked in the engineering sector of Western Deep Levels gold mine at Carletonville. I in turn served my time as a hairdresser and also worked in the Mine laboratory.

What do you do for fun?

In our older years we have both taken to lawn bowls so that we can play a sport together.

Do you enjoy your retirement at La Récolte?

We enjoy the security and feel a lot safer at La Récolte.

We have made lots of new friends, and enjoy helping others whenever we can.

Especially doing the boerie roll Braai's!
