Retirement can be a bit of a mixed bag, One the one hand you might be looking at some exciting new beginnings, perhaps you are going to move into one of the Gloucestershire Park Homes that are available, or you are going to spend more time with your family, and on the other hand you might find that you desperately trying to find things to fill your time with now that you don’t have a regular work schedule.

Here are some of the ways that you can make the most of your retirement.


Travel – why not make a list of all the places that you want to travel to and slowly work them off your list. This could be places within your own country or perhaps places abroad. There are some incredible places to visit and you can be sure to find something whether you are a sun worshipper or prefer something a little cooler with incredible landscapes.


Hobbies – take up a hobby such as gardening, writing or walking. There are hundreds of different hobbies that you can take part in. Some of them you may want to do on your own or with family and friends and in other cases you might want to join a local group.

Volunteer – when you have more time available to you after you have finished working full time you might want to look at some volunteering opportunities. Again there are lots of different things that you can do, from helping out in a local charity shop or library through to offering to listen to primary school children to read.
