How to be happy in your new Cheshire park home

Does this sound familiar? It’s Monday. 7am hasn’t yet dawned and you are wide awake. When working life comes to an end, you have different choices to make. Get up early and make a prompt start to your day. Or take the morning at a more leisurely pace. There’s no need to rush now you are retired.

Ask any friend who’s over 60 if they feel old and they say ‘No,’ they’re at a new beginning. What is their advice for being happy and healthy over the age of 55? Be interested in what’s happening in the world, take a sense of enjoyment, be positive, at every age and above all: be yourself. Do what you want to do because it will help you live a healthier and happier life.

This is easier when you live in the right environment. As an active, independent retiree, it is worth visiting Willowpool by Arbor Living to see what Lymm has to offer if you are considering relocating.

A luxury, village environment

What makes the perfect retirement location? Lots to do locally, new people to meet, things to do in every season whatever the weather and a luxury property to come home to at the end of each day.

Research says we’re happier and healthier in green spaces and being around plant life. For this reason, landscaped parkland makes up a large percentage of all Arbor Living developments. Living among natural elements has a positive effect (studies say) on energy levels and creativity which is good news for retirees who have decided to make Willowpool their home.

Join Lymm’s vibrant community

New residents are warmly welcomed to Lymm. If you come to the village on a Tuesday morning, visit the Spread Eagle and ask about their ‘meet and greet’. New residents can meet local people in the community they’re soon to join. You’ll hear about annual festivals – there’s one for every season – and the highlight Lymm Festival held in June every year.

Lymm Heritage Centre is a good place to learn about Lymm. Newly opened (summer 2017), you’ll learn about the history, festivals, clubs and societies in the village. You may even find yourself becoming a volunteer.

Why to love Lymm’s closest city

What has Manchester in common with Sydney, Tokyo and New York? They are all age-friendly cities. The Greater Manchester Ageing Hub supports re-designing Manchester to interest an ageing population in its cultural and community activities. There’s even an over-50s night club.

Manchester is the nearest city to Lymm, just 19 miles away. It has an industrial heritage, conservation areas and the regenerated neighbouring city of Salford with waterfront museums and cultural centre.

Find out what to do, where to eat and how to enjoy the city on the VisitManchester website.
