Vibrant and active village life at Charters

charters 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.

Indeed, at Charters there are residents who play an active role in the smooth running of the community. John Fairclough is chairman of the Residents Association, which acts on behalf of those who live at Charters. John works closely with the village’s manager and senior figures at Retirement Villages to address issues that are of interest or a concern to fellow residents. You can read more about John and his role at Charters here.

We caught up with two couples who brought apartments in Charters’ latest phase of development: Roddy & Sylvia Mackenzie and Leonard & Norma Hilborne. Click on the links to read all about why they chose to move to our retirement village and what they love about it. We also spoke to Dorothy Creelman who lives in Charters Towers and Jayne Webb, the daughter of resident Beryl Lawley.

Or if you prefer, you can watch our video case study featuring Charters’ resident Mollie Lufkin, who kindly shares her story.

Here at Charters Village there is an active social life with a broad mix of special interest groups and social events organised by residents for the residents but always supported by the Retirement Villages’ on-site staff.
