SELF-ISOLATING can be difficult, especially if living alone – which is why we are looking at new ways to help support residents at The Forge to stay healthy and happy during lockdown.

To help residents to maintain a lively social calendar we are hosting virtual weekly social events including virtual quiz nights to keep residents’ mind sharp and glasses full.

We are helping residents keep their kitchen shelves topped up with the regular delivery of survival packs, the most recent in partnership with Pumphreys Coffee including, assorted coffee, tea, cookies, chocolate and our resident favourite Biscoff biscuits.

Those living in the building are also being helped to keep in good physical and mental shape while onsite gym facilities are closed. Yoga instructor, Rachel from Conscious Calm, is on ‘virtual’ hand to help residents perfect their sun salutations and downward dogs. Personal Trainer, Josh Fear, is available for personal nutritional advice and recommendations. In addition, he is rolling out a series of wellness webinars for residents, with the next one due to focus on professional nutritional advice to help improve or maintain a healthy diet during lockdown.

Finally, in a world of social distancing, residents are also able to remotely manage repairs and maintenance, view upcoming events and chat to other residents via The Forge Resident app.

For those who are planning ahead for a move to The Forge once restrictions are lifted, we are now hosting virtual video viewings of the premium one, two and three-bedroom apartments including communal spaces.

These are challenging times, but we are making every effort to support our community of residents. The Forge team are always available to you, willing and able to listen to your personal needs, providing you with the very best environment we can.
