For Renaissance Retirement, community is not just about the people who live in its 13 retirement developments, but also about how it can contribute to the communities outside.

Inspired by the much-loved parks and village greens across the country, Renaissance’s architects, designers and planners create places that aren’t just attractive, but a real contribution to the people who live in the local area.

Wimborne, for example, is a beautiful, historic town in Dorset, which offers a variety of things to do and see.

So Renaissance wants to make sure its owners at its brand new Fleur-de-Lis development know what they can enjoy there.

Owning a home with Renaissance is more than just about independent retirement living, it’s about building new friendships and relationships, and joining in with everything life has to offer beyond the development itself.

This is especially important for those who are new to the area.

The attraction of Wimborne as a place to live has seen new owners come from the surrounding areas, so Renaissance wants to make sure its residents don’t feel isolated and can benefit from a warm and friendly environment.

This is just one of the reasons Fleur-de-Lis organises regular coffee mornings and other events, including a recent trip to see Queen Elizabeth School’s fantastic production of Les Misérables.

Renaissance’s work in the Wimborne community is off to a great start.

It is supporting the Tivoli theatre, helping out at one of the fantastic clubs at the Allendale Community Centre and supporting the Wimborne Food Bank.

The development itself has both one-and-two-bedroom apartments priced from £270,000 available to move into now, with large, bright, open living spaces, patios and balconies all with a new, high-quality finish throughout.

Owners have use of a shared drawing room and kitchen where friends gather to enjoy activities and socialise.

In the warmer months the drawing room doors open up onto a patio terrace with tables and seating so the socialising can continue al fresco.

If owners have friends and family who want to visit they can stay in the guest suite.

This has tea and coffee making facilities, an en-suite bathroom and TV. It is easily booked by contacting the on-site concierge who is available Monday to Friday.

Wimborne is a fabulous location, near to the River Allen, which has excellent riverside footpaths and is just a few minutes walk from the thriving central local town where you’ll find cafés, pubs, restaurants and an array of shops.

You are invited to view the newly-launched Fleur-De-Lis Wimborne development and see what life could be like if you lived there.

The sales office is open to walk-in visitors from Tuesday to Saturday 10am-5pm.
