Hampshire Lakes is a great place to live if like me you are on your own. Everybody is friendly, both staff and residents. I feel totally safe, day and night and I know that if I needed help somebody would be with me within seconds. My dog is more than welcome and I enjoy walking with her and maybe catching sight of a deer or fox and seeing the flowers changing with the seasons. It is great that early on in the life of the village a group of residents set up a theatre group and others get together to play different card games. But what is good is that the village is growing and over the next few months new residents will be moving in so more new friends for us all. Despite any of the small problems we may have had I cannot now imagine living anywhere else.
