My Mother is a keen gardener. Is there any scope for that in the village?

As a keen gardener myself, I can assure you that although the gardens and grounds are kept beautifully by Johnathan the Head Gardener, he is always thankful for a little help.

Before coming to Richmond Village, I had a large garden which I started to find a little daunting, and when gardening starts to become a chore, then it stops being as enjoyable. Now I have the best of both worlds- I can help in the gardens if I wish to and for as long as I want, but I don't have to if I don't feel like it.

How difficult do you think it would be for my elderly mother to move to somewhere like Richmond Village from Norfolk,where she has lived her entire life. I live near Nantwich, but her friends and sisters are all in Norfolk.

Having moved to Richmond Village Nantwich last year at the age of 87, I have found it to be the best move that I have made. I came here on a recommendation from a lady who was in Northampton Richmond Village, and that I met whilst holidaying in Tuscany.

Although I have very many friends from where I used to live, I had no friends or family here in Nantwich when I decide to move. Alison and Nicola (the Village Advisers) made my decision very easy and were ( and continue to be) extremely helpful. I have never regretted my decision to move here, and have never looked back. Although I admit that leaving my friends behind was difficult, but I still see them regularly, as they come to visit me or I them for weekends at a time, and I am in constant contact with them on the phone.

The physical side of moving is hard work, but with many hands makes light work and with friends and family, you are soon rewarded and can settle easily into your new home.

My new neighbours and I are already firm friends, and everyone in the Village is very sociable. But you can be as sociable as you wish to be here: whether it be chatting with a fellow villager in the gorgeous gardens or if you are an avid attendee at the various and numerous activities and events that are held on a daily basis.

I would recommend coming to visit the village to get a feel for the atmosphere and services that are provided. I would be more than happy to meet on your visit should you wish.
