About Solihull Village

Solihull Village provides new opportunities for over-55s in Shirley.

Based on the site of the former Powergen offices at Shirley, the village offers a new lease of life for the over 55s. At ExtraCare, our philosophy is that later life is for doing more, not less. Solihull Village gives you the chance be part of an active and vibrant community, where you can share your skills and learn new ones.

With up to 50 activities a week, you’ll never be at a loss for something to do. The village has a host of facilities, including an arts and crafts room and a cinema, where you can stay active and take part in the community on your doorstep.
