Active village life at Avonpark, Wiltshireavonpark-village-life

Each of our retirement villages has its own individual personality – created by the residents living there. It is their village and they are instrumental in shaping village life and the type of community in which they choose to live. Keeping things running smoothly and working on behalf of the residents to ensure they lead happy, fulfilling lives in retirement is our Village Manager Sylvester Harker.

You can also read about one of our residents Tony Slee, who is very happy at Avonpark kindly agreed to share his story with us.
