St Georges Park - Banner 5
“Welcome to St George's Park where we offer excellent retirement accommodation and a wonderful range of facilities, security and independence within a vibrant and diverse community.”

The Community

A community where neighbours are friends

December 2006 saw the village spring to life with the first residents moving into their luxury apartments in both Maple and Maes Courts. Now nearly 300 people are enjoying their retirement in our multi award winning village.

Although many are from Sussex numerous people have moved from as far afield as Northumberland and the West Country. A few have even come from such distant places as Spain, India and the Bahamas. However they have wasted no time in creating a genuine retirement community with many strong friendships having been forged.

An active Residents Association has organized a number of clubs and societies for those interested, which include art club, local history, scrabble, book clubs and friendly bridge club to name but a few. Residents have also arranged outings to the theatre, the cinema, the ballet and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Plus various outings to Galleries, concerts, National Trust etc. also arranged by the Residents.

The existing original concert hall, with its ornate ceiling, is being well utilised for special occasions and communal gatherings such as plays, guest speakers, film nights and concerts. In fact a number of charity concerts have taken place including one with the classical pianist Mariko Tanaka.

During the day the hall is used for short mat bowls, line dancing and short tennis all of which are well attended.

The games room with snooker and table tennis tables is being used on games nights organised by the residents, and the therapy room is used by visiting therapists from chiropractor and massage therapists to reflexology and chiropodists. The therapists and hairdressing salon is by appointment through the concierge.

The specialist gym equipment which adjusts to the user’s level is proving popular. Many residents have already had their induction and along with the opportunity to take country walks in the grounds some have stepped up their fitness regimes.

As St George's Park and the community continue to thrive the Village is becoming more vibrant, friendly and caring and as more and more residents move into their apartments it is proving to be much more than just a place to live. It is a lifestyle choice, and one that for many will give them the best years of their lives.
