Vista homeowners enjoy fun and laughter at festive Christmas lunch Our homeowners in Parkstone got together to enjoy fun and laughter during a host of festive fun at their annual Christmas lunch. Scores of over-55s who live at Vista, our independent-living community based in Mount Road, enjoyed a three-course meal, including a traditional Christmas dinner, drinks, crackers, and music. Afterwards, Mel Litchfield, Vista’s Community Manager, invited each person to collect and open their Secret Santa present from under the Christmas tree during the special event which enabled them to socialise ahead of Christmas Day. The festive event took place in the communal lounge of our Parkstone community, which is one of a host of shared spaces that our homeowners can use. Other communal facilities include an activity room, treatment room and garden. It was just one of a host of activities organised for our homeowners in the lead-up to Christmas. Each of our communities has a dedicated onsite Community Manager who helps to organise fun activities such as wine tasting workshops, yoga, coffee mornings, quizzes, and crafts, as well as providing practical and emotional support to the community’s homeowners. Mel Litchfield, Community Manager for Vista, said: “All of our homeowners had a fantastic time while having a laugh and a chat during their Christmas lunch. It’s an event in the calendar that they all look forward to each year and so it was lovely to see them having so much fun.” Vista is located just a six-minute drive away from Poole Park, a seven-minute drive to the Dolphin Shopping Centre, and a 10-minute drive to Sandbanks, where families can enjoy a day at the beach or catch a ferry over to Studland. The nearest convenience store is just a five-minute walk away, which also features a bus stop to take people into Bournemouth town centre. Over at Esprit, which is based in Poole town centre, our homeowners also enjoyed a Christmas meal, as well as hosting their own Christmas market in partnership with the Vista homeowners, which featured a host of gifts and homemade items to purchase for friends and family. Each of our low-maintenance apartments features energy-saving appliances in the kitchens, and step-free showers in the bathrooms.
