Activities & Amenities

Village Facilities

Widenham Retirement Village is the fourth addition to Hibiscus Retirement Village’s portfolio. Continuing with the successful model laid down by the other three villages, Widenham Village will include all the same facilities.

The Village Bowls Club is already active, with our two beautiful newly-laid greens in play. The club house, gym, library and swimming pool are also completed.  Also planned are tennis courts, entertainment hall, chapel and a restaurant and coffee shop to be added as the development grows.

Frail Care is a cornerstone of the Hibiscus Retirement Village ethos and a comprehensive facility will be built on-site, available to all residents. A fully functioning clinic is already up and running, supported by the Umdoni and Margate Care Centers.

Service and safety are of paramount importance and so, panic buttons, patrolling guards and a bus service to nearby malls and hospitals are all part of the Widenham programme. The Widenham Village Residents Activities Committee is established, with a number of activities already up and running.
