The Community at Platinum Skies for over 55’s

Our communities have a range of exclusive onsite facilities including a bistro, bar, homeowners’ lounge, treatment room and activity room.

Each community also boasts two dedicated Community Managers, who organise fun activities such as wine tasting workshops, live music, yoga, coffee mornings, quizzes, and crafts, as well as providing practical and emotional support to the homeowners.

Laura Warwick, Community Director at Platinum Skies, said: “One thing that many of our homeowners have in common is that they experience great joy being outdoors and love all of the wildlife that comes to visit the gardens in our communities.

She added: “We thought that arranging these talks would be the perfect way for each of our communities to join together for some interesting conversations about making the most of the balconies and gardens that they have while planning for the spring season.”
