The Hawthorns - News from Our Retirement Communities

Because we take care of the mundane tasks at The Hawthorns and The Gardens, our residents have more time to enjoy themselves. They are able to entertain friends and family who are welcome to visit any time. At each of our retirement communities there is a guest suite and private dining room that you can book when you want to host a lunch or dinner.

There are a number of activities to choose from each month and if there is a particular activity that interests any of our residents – even if it’s just one person, our activities co-ordinators are happy to accommodate this in any way they can.

Residents of The Gardens, the private retirement hamlet of bungalows and maisonettes adjacent to The Hawthorns in Eastbourne, are also welcome to join in any of the events and activities as part of their all-inclusive retirement lifestyle.

Here is some information about some of the events that have taken place at The Hawthorns over the past few months.
