A little bit about life here:

View over the pondOur well-stocked library is open 3 days a week between 10.30 and 11.30
There is also an excellent second hand shop which stocks everything from good used second hand clothes to furniture. The idea being that residents donate what they no longer want or need and buy what they do want. The shop is maintained and run by one of our residents Dorit Daubinet and her team of helpers.

The dining room serves dinner at midday every day of the week. Breakfast and supper are also available should one wish to eat all meals in the centre. These are available at a nominal charge.

There are always lovely walks around the ‘pond’ where we have a variety of birds. Park benches are strategically placed for you to relax and enjoy the bird life and tranquility of the area.

There is a garden service which comes once a week which forms part of the levy. The grass is cut and grass cuttings removed.

Weekly half-hour slots are allocated to each cottage to get beds weeded, holes dug or plants potted. This too forms part of the monthly levy.

Friday evening is ‘Happy Hour’ held around the pub from 5.30pm. This is a good place to meet old friends and make new ones.
All welcome.

Entertainment evenings are held on the last Friday of the month in the residents lounge. Bring a plate of snacks and join in the fun.
