Penkridge may offer perfect retirement setting

Penkridge may offer perfect retirement setting

The village of Penkridge could be the ideal location for people looking to spend their retirement in a quaint market town.

Located in Staffordshire, the area has become well known for its community spirit and for many local residents it remains more of a village than a town.

The main event for many is the regular market. Held every Wednesday and Saturday it allows people to buy the best of locally sourced produce and goods.

On a quirky note, the centre of the town still retains a set of stocks - a definite talking point for new residents.

Property for sale in Penkridge also offers benefits for those who are yet reaching retirement age.

Families will be impressed by the strength of the local education system. There are a number of primary schools that feed in to a middle school and high school, with such local options on the doorstep it makes doing the school run much easier.

There are plenty of leisure options for residents. Penkridge is home to a number of pubs, including The Horse and Jockey, The Littleton Arms and The White Hart Inn.

In addition, there are a couple of interesting cafes and restaurants that serve a wide range of dishes.

Throughout the year, there are a number of local events to help boost community spirit. One of the highlights is the annual Christmas funfair and market.

Taking place on the last Friday of November, the festive event is held in the centre of the town and welcomes around 70 different stalls. There are plenty opportunities for to buy Christmas gifts for family and friends, as well as plenty for the children to enjoy.

In May, the town also hosts a Let's Celebrate Penkridge Day. Organised by the local parish council, the event will focus on all the benefits of living in the area and is attended by all the local charities and organisations.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801708228-ADNFCR
