After having welcomed its members for more than 35 years at their location on avenue Président J.F. Kennedy, the Temps de Vivre Club has just moved. The Club, reserved for retired residents of the Principality, includes 195 members between the ages of 57 and 96. They recently took up their new quarters at the beginning of January in their temporary premises, located at 4, boulevard Charles III.
The move was caused by the pending future demolition of the Kennedy Avenue building before the Club’s final move to the Saint Devote Hostel in Monaco-Ville.
The members of the Club have already been able to take advantage of their new premises, which were specially designed for them. For now, three rooms are available for physical activities (yoga, soft gymnastics, tai chi and more), creative workshops and games. The large room on the ground floor, for receptions and parties, is still under construction. Once the works are completed, at the end of the second quarter of 2019, a large area (390 m2 on two levels, larger than the old venue) will be ready to accommodate Club members.
To get to the new location, a bus stop (Compagnie des Autobus de Monaco) is located in the immediate vicinity of the premises and a mini-bus run by the Social Action Service remains at the disposal of members to transport them free of charge between their home and this new address.
On 6 December, Mayor Georges Marsan and Claude Bollati, Communal Councillor delegated to the Temps de Vivre Club, accompanied by Isabelle Cellario, Head of Social Service Action at the Town Hall, met the members during a festive tea party symbolically organized on the Club’s last day at its premises at Quai Kennedy.
