A time to indulge in new hobbies and pastimes

They are called your golden years for a reason, and retirement provides plenty of time and the perfect opportunity to pursue new activities. Whether it is gardening, watching sports or getting back into crosswords, the time afforded by retirement is perfect for doing things just for fun! All LifeCare Residences’ communities provide ample opportunity for residents to meet like-minded people and even get involved in a range of activities and clubs on offer – be it board games, craft, ukulele, cards, falconry, archery, bridge or music. Award-winning Battersea Place not only provides a full spectrum of five-star amenities and services for its residents, the team is dedicated to helping facilitate a wide array of clubs and classes to get involved in, such as the popular Theatre and Opera Supper Clubs, a Book Club and a Discussion Club. In addition, the Battersea Place team host Musical Dinners, Murder Mystery Nights, live screenings from the Royal Opera House, as well as talks and lectures from visiting film and art historians. It doesn’t end there – residents at Battersea Place can join a Bridge Club as well as turning their hand to scrabble or even an art class. At Grove Place in Hampshire, residents can enjoy a wide-ranging plethora of activities set up by the LifeCare Residences’ team. Weekly activities on offer include a Gardening Club, Craft Club, an art class, a Creative Group, Bridge and a Choir. Ten pin bowling also takes place on a regular basis. Many of the apartments and bungalows at Grove Place have their own balconies and terraces which residents greatly enjoy. Resident Barbara Wood not only relishes the many walks in the rolling Hampshire countryside, but also the ability to turn her hand to gardening. “Our apartment is on the ground floor, and we have easy access to a private terrace and the grounds beyond. This allows me to indulge my green-fingered gardening hobby in my own patch of Grove Place.” Peggy Bigglestone, who retired to Grove Place in Hampshire five years ago concludes, “I feel utterly spoilt here. There is a range of activities you can try out; I am part of the choir and a ukulele club, and I go out on lots of day trips; some of my friends use the pool or the gym. There is always something interesting happening that you are welcome to join in with.”
