Over the next 10 weeks we’re going to invite you to tell us each week how you find yourself at Greythorn? How do you discover the difference at Greythorn and why do you love where you live? We want you to engage with us on Facebook and give us your story.
It all may sound like just your normal part of life, but is it really? Business as usual in the past would see us working somewhere else, dining and socialising in another location and living where we live.
COVID has changed all of that and brought us closer to home. In fact, we are living, working and playing in our own back yards. Have you ever taken the time to discover what is in your neighbourhood?

There is nothing grey about Greythorn. The last month of winter is here but we can see the spring blossoms beginning to show their petals of colour and we can smell the magnolias as they splash out their magnificent blooms to remind us we’re over the hump of winter.
