“John and I moved into Marian Grove almost four years ago, not sure what to expect from living in a retirement village. We have continued to be delighted and thrilled with our choice and feel so very lucky to be part of this wonderful community here in Marian Grove.

We love the relaxed, almost resort, feeling of the village, with the trees and gardens, the fountains, statues and art works that adorn the chapel gardens, the beautiful recreational room which also houses a well-stocked and skilfully cared for library, a kitchen and a billiards room.  The gardens and villas are so professionally maintained and supported by our maintenance crew. The new Grove Café has become a central meeting spot to enjoy morning coffee and snacks with friends and family, or a freshly cooked lunch to share with fellow residents.

Our activities programme is wide and varied to suit all tastes from table tennis, cards, craft, Wii fitness groups, bingo, embroidery, movie and concert afternoons to name just a few. A very special and enjoyable activity is our monthly resident’s luncheon in the recreational room.

We, the residents, are very well supported by a very caring and professional management and pastoral care team whose aim is always to ensure we continue to receive the excellent service they provide for us.

John and I continue to have a great feeling of pride and contentment in living here at Marian Grove, a retirement village beyond all our expectations.”
