To say it’s been a tough 18 months is an understatement but we’re starting to come out of the other side and we, and our residents, wanted to give a nod to the occasion by putting on celebrations across the communities. As most of our villages would usually celebrate with a summer party, and having missed 2020’s opportunity the Village Managers and teams were all keen to give our residents and their loved ones the chance to come together and really begin to make up for lost time.

The majority of our villages from up in Warwickshire in the Midlands, down through Essex & Surrey in the Southeast to West Sussex in the South, celebrated the lifting of COVID restrictions, with villages and communities bursting back into life with the sounds of music and laughter. There’s been a whole host of events, and it’s wonderful to see our residents, their families and the teams at our communities be able to come together once more to drink, eat, dance and laugh – and enjoy the fleeting sunshine we’ve been given this year!

We managed to snap some great shots from amongst the fun so enjoy them at your leisure below.

Even the predictably unpredictable British weather couldn’t dampen the spirits of our villages. The residents and village team of Mayford Grange (nr Woking, Surrey) were undeterred by the sudden arrival of thunderstorms on the day of their party and simply moved their intended Outdoor Street Party indoors, where they enjoyed entertainment from a 1940s tribute trio band, an impressive buffet spread and the fantastic company of their friends and families.

Our residents and village teams’ enthusiasm and determination to host their own unique freedom parties is a testament to the thriving sense of community each RVG village is founded upon. Our residents join our communities to make the most of their retirement years and celebrations with their neighbours and friends, such as the ones highlighted above, are the best way to enjoy your spare time. It’s wonderful to see our communities coming back to life as residents feel comfortable to come together with each other and their families in this space once again.
