Verwood: The perfect place to settle into retirement

Verwood: The perfect place to settle into retirement

When reaching the age of retirement, the realisation will come that you have many different sorts of requirements out of the place you live in than when you were a busy working professional. This means that for many people, a change of scenery in later life can often be preferable, as it gives the chance to find a whole raft of amenities and activities that might not have been available to you before.

For example, if you are looking for a new place to settle down in your retirement, you might want something that is a little quieter than larger areas, and with something of a community feel that you may not have experienced in the past. This way of life can be discovered while looking for property for sale in Verwood.

The Dorset town is home to just 14,000 people, and despite being the largest town in its county, it will still be relatively peaceful and quiet. However, it will be its community elements that make Verwood a preferable place to live.

On Fridays, a local market still runs in the town, giving people the chance to meet those living around them, as well as providing the opportunity to buy locally sourced and grown foods and other produce.

Away from the market, the town has a small community hall called the Hub. In here, locals are able to enjoy plays, other shows and films at the Merryfield Theatre, which will seat as many as 300 people, and meetings of small groups in the hall, with a capacity of 100 people, which helps them become much more of a part of the community.

There are also two different shopping areas in the town, both within the centre itself and on the outskirts, and for those who are looking to stay fit and healthy in their retirement, there will be a chance to get involved with a raft of different activities and fitness classes at the local sports and leisure centre, with classes that will suit anyone and everyone.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801536716-ADNFCR
