Student shop volunteer Ruby discusses her role volunteering at an ExtraCare charity shop.

Charity Shop

Quite apart from the amazing comfort, spaciousness and support, the village is a wonderful combination of lots of activities, wonderful friendliness, and the chance, when you want, to be alone and undisturbed. And it’s such a beautiful, beautiful setting! Everyone can do their retirement their way!

My favourite thing about working out at our gym is the positive outcomes, physically and mentally, that my regular exercising brings. It’s never too late to exercise!

John Wheeldon

Lark Hill Village

We’ve made some very close friends here; we meet downstairs and feel very safe and secure.  In your own house you may not know your neighbours, you feel much less lonely here. Here you can have a cup of coffee with anyone!

Lovat Fields Village

Here at the village there is always something going on and always someone to talk to. What I look forward to most is the oil painting class on a Friday morning followed by catching up with friends over coffee. Life at Stoke Gifford Village is good!

Swimming is the best form of exercise especially for older adults. I have swum in National, European and World championships winning medals in Sweden, Russia, Hungary, Italy and the UK.

I just love to perform. I even recorded my own song in the Netherlands at a studio. Soon I’ll be going on tour in America with fellow competition winners at a talent agency.

Pannel Croft Village

I've always collected music and been a fan of it, I don't know why but I collected karaoke songs. After a year of living at the village I stepped in and DJ’d at a 90th birthday party, after that I ended up doing it regularly. That’s how I got my nickname ‘DJ Roy’.

I love to build illusions and create magic equipment. I auditioned for the Magic Circle and was accepted when I was in my 40s!

When my husband and I reached middle-age, we developed different hobbies. It was then we realized our shared desire to explore something entirely new to both of us. We decided to pursue beekeeping!

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.
