Siddington Park fulfills all my requirements
"After two years of living on my own in a four bedroom house I decided it was time to move to a retirement apartment. I did not want just an apartment but more of a community. Siddington Park fulfills all my requirements. These include a pool, a Restaurant, a Cinema and a Gym as well as the opportunity to join in various events. I have opted for a two bedroom apartment. The apartment is spacious and the kitchen fittings are to a very good standard. The bathroom has a walk in shower. I intend to use the smaller bedroom as a study as I am studying with the Open University.
It will be wonderful to be able to be on my own when I want to be, but if I need a break I will be able to visit the pool or have a coffee in the restaurant and meet other residents or walk in the garden which I will not have to weed. Sandra, the Marketing Representative was very helpful. She emailed the information about the apartments to my children who do not live near me. They were impressed with the floor plans and facilities and agree I am doing the right thing. I felt so excited when I first visited the Marketing Suite and I still am. I know I am making the correct choice by moving into Siddington Park."

We are thoroughly impressed with Siddington Park
The show apartments are well dressed and bring the pictures alive. Floor plans alone do not go anywhere near to seeing the ‘real thing’.
The apartments feel spacious and we love the bay windows and the bathroom designs make them feel spacious too. Sandra explained the ‘tech’ aspects well.
Altogether thoroughly impressed and can’t wait to move in!

The workshop is a great addition to the excellent amenities we already have at Mickle Hill
"The workshop is a great addition to the excellent amenities we already have at Mickle Hill. It was erected in 2019, and since then we have insulated it, lined out the inside, and painted it out. We have fitted it out with a purpose-made long joiners bench, a large table top for various activities, and a smaller bench so wheelchair users can be included as well. Two wood carving kits have been donated so we have lots of tools and equipment.
About 3 or 4 residents frequently use the workshop but all are welcome to use the tools and power tools, under supervision. On leaving school I had an apprenticeship in carpenter and joinery followed by a career in, or attached to, the Building Industry, so I enjoy sharing my skills and experience with others. We have a number of lady residents who are keen to make something in wood, not having had the opportunity before, and the making of bird boxes has been suggested."
I founded Wadswick Green's Musical Memories Group
"I founded the Musical Memories group about four years ago now. I’d been at Wadswick Green for a few months, and I thought I would set a group up and see what the interest would be. Music is really connected to people’s memories, and I find for over 60s it’s particularly true with music from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. I noticed how easily people remembered music and lyrics, so I thought that maybe playing music and discussing it could be a good idea.
We’ve had the Musical Memories group going for some time now, so we know each other quite well, it’s really good. When we first came to Wadswick Green we didn’t know anybody, so it’s a great way to meet people. You get to learn about people’s backgrounds, because they reminisce about their life, what they were doing when a certain song was playing on the radio... It’s a lot better than just talking about the weather!"
An enjoyable moving experience at Mickle Hill
"We first made contact with the Yvette Jones [Mickle Hill sales advisor] last September when we visited Mickle Hill to report back to my mother-in-law who lived in Somerset at the time. Yvette has been magnificent throughout our engagement leading to the decision to purchase the Apartment in January and through to completion and moving in last week.
Yvette has a great attitude and a warm personality and was very supportive throughout our evaluation and decision-making process. Enquires were always answered promptly and nothing was too much trouble. As an example, she even broke her Christmas leave period to allow my mother-in-law to visit Mickle Hill whilst visiting relatives in the north. It is not an exaggeration to say that Yvette actually made the entire purchase process enjoyable!"
