ESIDENTS and spe­cially in­vited guests en­joyed an evening of jazz by the river at Thames­field re­tire­ment vil­lage in Hen­ley re­cently. The event was or­gan­ised to cel­e­brate a £250,000 re­fur­bish­ment of com­mu­nal ar­eas at the re­tire­ment vil­lage; the in­tro­duc­tion of a new concierge ser­vice and a new res­i­dents’ club de­signed to de­liver more ben­e­fits.

The Mayor of Hen­ley, Cllr Ju­lian Brookes at­tended the func­tion which at­tracted around 100 peo­ple. Guests were served with cham­pagne and canapés through­out the evening and guests were taken on short river cruises.

The re­fur­bish­ment in­cludes the re-dec­o­ra­tion, re-car­pet­ing and fur­nish­ing of com­mu­nal ar­eas at Thames­field, which of­fers ho­tel-style re­tire­ment liv­ing apart­ments.

Res­i­dents have a com­mu­nal din­ing room with bar, or­angery, sun room and can ac­cess a range of other ser­vices in­clud­ing care.

“To re­flect the ho­tel-style ser­vice lev­els we have also ap­pointed a ded­i­cated concierge to book taxis, sort out ap­point­ments or res­tau­rant book­ings, source lo­cal in­for­ma­tion, ar­range re­fresh­ments and gen­er­ally pro­vide ex­tra ‘front of house’ sup­port,” said vil­lage man­ager Sophia Lawrence.

“This vil­lage has al­ways been a very special jewel in the Re­tire­ment Vil­lages’ crown and we con­tinue to de­velop and in­vest in our range of ser­vices to res­i­dents here at Thames­field,” Re­tire­ment Vil­lages’ ex­ec­u­tive chair­man Nigel Welby told guests.
