This village has everything - medical centre on site invaluable at our age. Leisure Centre and beauty treatments on site to make you feel good. If you are fit enough you can join in classes for Pilate etc. You can have a personal trainer to get you in peak condition for your age. A chiropodist visits regularly if you can't bend down to reach your toes. There is a bar/restaurant on site if you don't feel like cooking. Bungalow is just what we needed and doors wide enough to take wheelchair if necessary later on. Neighbour and I want to double the size of the veranda. And have a gate at one end to leave the bungalow from the back to nab the ice cream man before he drives off - or chat to someone - so will have to ask about that and a patio sometime. Visitors to site are all ages - which is good and locals can come to Bingo, snooker and other events etc. We try to join in the various activities and I want peace to write and friends to help sell my novels by word of mouth. As an author I've had problems with people hacking my computer, which could happen anywhere. But confusing my book plots with real life causes imaginary grievances? It is good to know that you can always pass the time of day with someone in the shop or sit and have a cuppa. Or a coffee if the bar is open. If you have an emergency even in the middle of the night you can pull an orange cord or press a lifeline button to get advice and help. Many people living here have had interesting lives before they retired so I will be offering help and advice to anyone wanting to write their memoirs. Overall this is a good place to live and we are near relatives now.
