There’s something to please everyone at The Croft!

It’s no wonder residents at The Croft in Bourne love where they live – there’s always something to enjoy on their busy social calendar.

The Croft is an exclusive community development for those aged 55 and over in the heart of Lincolnshire. Developed by Larkfleet Homes and Keystone Developments, The Croft offers a selection of 68 one and two-bedroom bungalows with three-bedroom chalet bungalows for those who prefer more space.

This unique community of property options is set around attractively landscaped gardens which are a key feature of the development.

The Croft team takes pride in organising a fantastic programme of events for residents and the wider over 55s community in Bourne. Activities range from yoga classes to art exhibitions – organisers always ensure they provide a selection of activities to suit a wide range of tastes.

Residents are encouraged to organise their own events or set up a hobby group if there is something they’d like to take part in.

A new season of social activities began with a three-hour Wifi/computer training event on 17 May, giving residents an opportunity to learn more about computers and information technology. They were shown how to get to grips with basic computer use, including setting up and managing an email account.

On Saturday 24 May there’s an art exhibition and cheese and wine event between 3pm and 7pm. Again, this is open to Croft residents and local people. The event will be showcasing art and crafts created by the Croft residents themselves.

The sportsmen (and women) will be keen to get their eye in for a darts tournament on Friday 13 June. Light refreshments will be served as competitors show their skills on the oche between 3pm and 6pm.

Plans are also in hand for a special event on 28 June to raise funds for the Armed Forces. The event will be a ‘Poppy Picnic’ between 2pm and 4pm. Final arrangements are still being made.

More events are being prepared for July and August – so keep an eye on The Croft website’s events section for further details.

Looking further ahead, another antiques valuation day is planned for Saturday 20 September (10.30am to 4pm). This is an ideal opportunity for local people and residents who own a particular item they would like to have valued or a family trinket they would like to find out more about. Even if you just have an interest in antiques you’ll be more than welcome!

A team of experts from Batemans Auctioneers of Stamford will be on hand throughout the day to offer free-of-charge valuations and advice on pieces. Refreshments will also be provided for visitors.

Similar ‘antiques roadshow’ events have been held at The Croft in the past and have proved extremely popular.

The Croft will again be hosting the ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ on Friday 26 September (from 10am to 12 noon) in what is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event.

The event encourages businesses and individuals from all over the UK – and sometimes further afield – to hold an informal coffee morning where donations are made to the charity in exchange for a cup of coffee.

Meanwhile, other events The Croft team is hoping to organise over the coming months include:

  • •   an informal evening with drinks, nibbles and music
  • •   wealth management seminar
  • •   yoga classes.
