Arrowtown Lifestyle Retirement Village residents, who’d been due to put a walking float into the street parade of the town’s since-cancelled autumn festival last month, came up with Plan B, instead.

They’re pictured lining up for a virtual walking float – with appropriate distancing measures.

Sales manager Vicci Lawrence whipped up T-shirts with residents’ special interests inscribed on the front.

Slogans included ‘I make wine disappear. What’s your super power?’, ‘Bake the world a special place’ and ‘Your pace or mine?’

A regular autumn festival sponsor, the retirement village normally hosts the senior citizens’ afternoon tea.
