  • Gwaun Ruperra Our home within a home, as lively or as quiet as you could wish it. For laughter and friendship and community spirit, from Bingo to Knitting, coffee mornings and social evenings shopping trips and seaside visits. We decide on day to day functions. Never a day without laughter and fun. A sense of belonging, with every day different to keep us amused all the hours long. The lounge so many stories (if only walls could talk) of functions and dinners, socials and clubs a chance for the glitz and the glamour, but slippers for some for the gentle stroll home to our flats when the evening is done. The warmer nights we all gather in the peaceful grounds, a drink or two is very nice as the sun goes down, a chance to reflect on the happy hours we spend together and happy to be part of the R.C.T family.
