Housing developer offers week-long October hobby classes at The Croft, Bourne.
An exclusive retirement community in Bourne, Lincolnshire, developed by housing specialists Larkfleet Homes and Keystone Developments for those aged 55 and over, is offering a week-long programme of hobby classes and other leisure activities for potential homebuyers.
All the events will take place at The Croft, in Bourne, from 15 to 20 October. Activities will include dance and art classes, wine and cheese tasting, flower arranging, a local history talk and lots more besides.
The one-hour classes are scheduled for each day between Monday and Friday. To ensure that no one misses anything they’re particularly interested in, Larkfleet will repeat many of the classes on Saturday 20 October.
Built in the grounds of The Croft, a former manor house on North Road in the heart of Bourne, the retirement community consists of 68 one and two-bedroom bungalows and two three-bedroom chalets arranged around attractively-landscaped courtyards.
Karl Hick, managing director of Larkfleet Homes (www.larkfleethomes.co.uk), said: “We’re very excited about the week of activities at The Croft for residents and potential homebuyers.
“The variety of hobby classes on offer underlines the potential The Croft has for enjoyable community living that allows residents to pursue their interests and hobbies.
“The week of hobby classes is a great opportunity for potential homebuyers to get a feel for the development and the benefits that it can offer its community.”
The Croft is a unique community development for like-minded people aged 55 and over who are looking to enjoy a relaxed lifestyle full of opportunities and possibilities. Homeowners enjoy living the lives they want to lead in a secure and caring environment.
It was a major factor in helping Larkfleet Homes to become the world’s best over 50s housing developer – an accolade achieved at the Global Over 50s Housing Services Awards. The Global Awards were created to celebrate the best individual and company performances in the worldwide over 50s housing sector.
The honour reflects and rewards Larkfleet’s commitment to meet the need for high quality housing for the over 50s. It also recognises the company’s market leadership, inspirational performance and high level of customer service in the rapidly-expanding over 50s housing sector.
Another Larkfleet ‘age exclusive’ development – Spinney House in Yaxley, near Peterborough – is also popular with homebuyers. Located within an existing residential part of this attractive Cambridgeshire village, Spinney House consists of 14 one and two-bedroom apartments designed for people over 55.
Many properties at The Spinney have been purchased ‘off plan’ which shows just how popular this type of housing is becoming in the area.
Karl Hick added: “As part of our commitment to produce market-leading affordable and open market housing, Larkfleet is dedicated to providing over 50s housing communities where residents can live in a secure and caring environment.
“The global award confirms Larkfleet as a leader in the provision of high quality, customer-friendly over 50s housing in the East Midlands and East of England.”
