Welcome to Providence

There are so many reasons to visit Providence, whether it is to visit family and friends or to explore the parks, café, land sales office, community centre, display village or to just enjoy one of our many events and activities.  Whatever your reason, we welcome you and hope you enjoy your visit.

For those of you who have made Providence your home, we look forward to welcoming you into your new Providence community.  Firstly, we have a welcome pack for you to come and collect from the Providence Centre.  Secondly, we would like to invite you for dinner because we believe, there really is no better way to feel welcomed than an invitation to share a meal with some of your neighbours. To find out when the next dinner is scheduled and to book your seat please go to what’s on.

Another great way to get involved and connect with your new community is to join your local community group or one of the many other local groups.  Or join us for an outdoor movie, an art class or one of the many activities or events on offer.
