Social Activities

Research evidence has long suggested that remaining socially connected is important to your physical and mental well-being, even going so far as to suggest that experiencing loneliness is as bad for you as smoking, especially as we get older.

But there is certainly no cause for concern in regard to finding new social connections and maintaining those you have already with a packed social calendar at The Henley that changes every month. New social events appear with regularity, many suggested by the residents themselves and it’s not just the organised entertainment that makes living at The Henley perfect. There is also a range of leisure activities and groups where you can make new friends over the latest game of bridge for example. And if there is something that you would like to organise yourself the team will work with you.

If it’s something outside you are after then a lawn bowls green on The Henley’s unique outdoor terrace is just the place.

It might be hard to imagine playing Lawn Bowls 16 floors up, but that is exactly what The Henley provides on its outdoor leisure area. Residents enjoy a roll up whether they are old hands or new to the game and there are plans for a league to play to the resident’s competitive spirits.
And for those who are more green fingered, never let it be said that The Henley is not suitable for those who still want a garden. Welcome to the Residents Herb and Plant Garden.

With perfect sunshine many days of the year and a set of green or not so green fingers, the residents have enjoyed being able to cater to their gardening desires with a great selection of vegetables and herbs being harvested this year with plans for some extra, and possibly more challenging growing, plants soon.

“It’s a place where residents continue to meet even when all the watering and tending have been done.
