The village library offers a marvelous selection of good reads and the computer room offers an ideal way to stay in touch with family and friends online if you don’t have your own technology.

The Dalton Gardens chapel is a welcoming place for quiet meditation or regular services. Together with Calvary’s onsite chaplain, the pastoral care is a wonderful aspect to village life offering professional and compassionate support when you may need it.
