Resident Stories

The people here are lovely, and we feel safe. That’s a big thing to feel safe. We have made lots of friends. I love it here, I’m content.

Resident Stories

I used to be a warden for the elderly for over 20 years so you could say I am a people person. For my 80th birthday the village threw me a party, I could not believe it, 80 to 90 residents ended up showing up for me. There were even daffodil bulbs at my party for everyone.

Resident Stories

Every Friday night we meet at one of our apartments and toast to friendship. We then enjoy a G&T and fish and chip Friday night and come here to enjoy the Piazza. We absolutely love it!

The Meaning of Friendship

Shenley Wood Village

Resident Stories

It has been two and a half years since we moved into Shenley Wood. We found our apartment here with the help of the council and I love it, it’s the best thing that happened to me. I love everything about this place.
