Safe and Secure
Then there is the aspect of security – many parks are gated and have park managers that regularly visit. There may even be a neighbourhood watch on the park. As residents will be familiar with the park, anything that looks unusual or concerning, they will be there to check it out and make sure everything is in order.
There may be times when you need a little extra help. The little things neighbours help each other with can make a massive difference, picking up prescriptions, helping each other with lifts and shopping, or even walking the dog if you’re out for the day!
With years of knowledge, practical experience and good will around you, whatever you need help with you’ll probably find it, and if you have a particular skill which others need or enjoy, you’ll probably find yourself particularly popular!
