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 recently caught up with two couples who have just moved into new apartments in Charters’ exclusive phase two development: Roddy & Sylvia Mackenzie and Leonard & Norma Hilborne. Click on the links to read all about why they felt the retirement village lifestyle was suitable for them, their reasons for choosing Charters and whether they are enjoying life in the village so far.

Or if you prefer, you can watch our latest video case study featuring Charters’ newest resident Mollie Lufkin, who has just moved in and is loving the retirement village lifestyle.

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.
