What social activities happen at retirement developments?

There is an array of social activities and clubs that run each day at most of the retirement developments, allowing residents to be involved as much or as little as they choose to be. These include: cards nights, film nights, afternoon tea, knitting clubs, painting clubs, games nights and reading clubs.

In addition to organised activities, there are always refreshments available in the comfortable communal lounges, where owners can get together at any time of day.

Residents often organise frequent outings to include pub lunches or theatre trips. Some developments are lucky enough to have a mobile library that visits them each week – so they don’t have to worry about returning a book late and are never short of anything to read!

Here are some real examples of social activities at selected retirement developments:
