The women, led by septuagenarian Margaret Gregory, were encouraged by Ryman Healthcare to do the video, and the company paid for the filming and production for a week.
Gregory said that it was purely for fun, and that they would consider doing another video in future.
She said: “We were lucky, it was a brilliant day – Palmerston North weather obviously – and we were able to have fun and everybody was able to get out and let ourselves enjoy it.”
The special needs teacher added: “This video is not just about me. It’s about all the others who took part and wanted to show people how wonderful it is to live in a village like we do and express ourselves, relax and enjoy each other.”
