The highly social aspects of the four Hawthorns locations, Braintree, Clevedon, Eastbourne and Northampton, make them a retirement community like no other. Each community provides a variety of daily well-being activities where there is always something for everyone to join in with and weekly trips out in their private minibuses, making valuable companionships become almost impossible to avoid.
With most government covid restrictions being lifted, the Hawthorns are delighted to bring more exciting activities and classes back for residents to get involved in. Each service also provides plenty of open days, allowing other like-minded retirees to discover the unique Hawthorns retirement living environment by taking a private guided tour of the facilities. The return of the monthly events that bring live entertainment to the communities’ doorsteps has also received a very warm reception from their residents and members of their local communities who are invited to join them.
Across the four Hawthorns, there have been some truly unmissable events, including Braintree’s ‘Saturday Night at the Hawthorns’, which guarantees the most showstopping acts in town. During June’s event, the audience was blown away by the breath-taking vocals of award-wining Italian Tenor Yuri Sabatini, whilst enjoying a delicious restaurant-quality 3-course meal prepared by the talented culinary team. Speaking of Yuri’s performance, Customer Service Manager Michaela Saunders said, “Yuri wowed the crowd with his exceptional voice making this an evening not to forget! He truly deserved the standing ovation at the end, and we look forward to inviting him back in the near future.”
Recently, Clevedon hosted a spectacular falconry display which brought fascinating birds of prey to their retirement community. Guest host, John Dowling from John Dowling Falconry Ltd, visited Clevedon with his feathered friends to show off to residents and visitors.
The crowd was immersed in the experience as they witnessed falcons with a wingspan up to 47 inches, hawks, buzzards and owls soaring across the Hawthorns gardens. A daughter of a resident who was in attendance exclaimed, “I am amazed by the range of diverse and exciting entertainment that the Hawthorns arrange for their lucky residents. So much fun and enjoyment!” She added, “I am so glad we found this perfect place for our much-loved mother to reside. I am very jealous of her!”
