With a huge variety of social activities available to residents, HRV’s social scene is a vibrant one. You choose what you would like to do and when, all the village does is provide options with a wide range of different amenities and activities designed to suit everyone.

Chess clubs, art clubs, music groups, yoga classes, quilters, bridge players, golf players, tennis tournaments, bowling clubs, gardening projects and plays are regularly organized by committees within the villages. Many of the village clubs have built strong relationships with the town communities and actively participate in community projects.

All you need to decide is where you would like to become involved and just how “retired” you would like to be…

Indoor Activities

The community of the Hibiscus Retirement Villages is something that cannot be over-stated. Informal social gatherings are always taking place within the community Centre and Lounge.

Indulge in a game of bridge, chess, rummikub or bingo and test your skills against your fellow residents. Or if that is not your preference, try your hand at some snooker or table tennis.

Pamper yourself with a trip to the in-house Hair & Beauty Salon and then polish your moves with a dance class.

Take some time out and spend some quiet time in the library, church or with a restorative yoga class. Convenience, accessibility and community are inherent in all the in-house facilities available on your doorstep.
