THEY say you can't put a price on happiness but the people at Bremer Waters retirement village reckon $4000 is a pretty good start.

Among other losses at the Tivoli village in the floods, residents lost their indoor bowls mats.

"With the bowls and everything it cost $4000 to replace them," resident Eric Evans said.

"We got a donation from Ipswich City Council and Heather Morrow's office put in $1000.

"There are about 300 residents here and anyone can use them. It's a very therapeutic thing as well."

On Wednesday, the residents invited Cr Morrow - and the Mayor, who couldn't make it - to Bremer Waters to say thanks.

"It's a pleasure being with such pleasant and happy people," Cr Morrow said. "You copped a caning 18 months ago but bounced back."
