For one Bournemouth resident, the decision to downsize led her to a stunning new apartment at Riverside Court

After making the decision that she wanted to downsize from her bungalow, Daphne Hales attended the launch of the new retirement apartments at Riverside Court. Mrs Hales has since purchased her new apartment here and was one of the first to move in, in October last year.

Talking of her recent move, Mrs Hales said: “I had made the decision that I was looking for a retirement property and I was aware of the wider development here at Tuckton Place. After attending the launch for the apartments I visited another couple of times before deciding that this was the place for me. It’s a big move when you decide to downsize and I wanted to make sure I chose the right place. After moving in last year I am already feeling settled and I am confident that I made the right choice. The location here is fantastic – easy walking distance to the shops and local facilities, while the buses stop right outside.

“Our Estate Manager Sue has been brilliant, she organises lots of different activities so there’s something for everyone. I’ve been along to some of the coffee mornings and those of us who had moved in all went for a Christmas lunch, which was nice. I hear there are plans to introduce a weekly exercise class too, which I’m looking forward to. The development also offers a lot of other benefits, which really help it to stand out. The handyman service available when you first move in is fantastic, I couldn’t fault it and the guest suite is a great addition that I have already been able to make use of when visitors come to stay. There’s a lovely atmosphere here, very friendly and welcoming, I’d definitely recommend Riverside Court to others.”
