Residents and staff at Watson Place were all shook up when the UK’s leading developer and manager of retirement communities, McCarthy Stone, hosted a cocktail evening at the Retirement Living Plus development on Trinity Road in Chipping Norton.

Guests who attended the special event enjoyed a fantastic evening in the communal lounge sipping a variety of drinks including Harvey Wallbangers, Champagne cocktails and a selection of Gin and Tonics. They also enjoyed a selection of mouth-watering canapés prepared by the Watson Place chef.

Samantha Watkins, Regional Sales and Marketing Director at McCarthy Stone Midlands, said: “Our cocktails event was a great success. What a great way to enjoy each others company, while also sampling some new drinks.

“At McCarthy Stone, we host around 10,000 events every month across the UK.  This latest event was an excellent opportunity for us to showcase the wide variety of activities we host here at Watson Place, and to provide people with an insight into the lives residents enjoy at the development.

“If you would like to learn what life is all about at Watson Place then come along to our new show complex opening event on 21st March from 11am. Our team will be on hand to show you all the benefits a McCarthy Stone property has to offer.”

Comprising a selection of 59 one and two-bedroom Retirement Living Plus apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 70 and over, Watson Place provides everything people in Chipping Norton could want for a relaxing retirement.  

Watson Place features an on-site bistro, a communal lounge which is ideal for socialising with friends and new neighbours, beautifully landscaped gardens in which to relax, and a convenient guest suite should friends or relatives wish to stay.

McCarthy Stone’s Retirement Living Plus developments offer retirees the opportunity to maintain an independent lifestyle, while having access to tailored domestic and personal assistance packages to help them manage their day-to-day lives. An Estates Manager is on hand to provide any help or support for residents, should they need it.
