McCarthy Stone, the housebuilder behind Chiltern Place Retirement Living PLUS development in Amersham, has given Amersham Town Council a boost with a £2,700 donation to support the ice rink this Christmas.

On 6th December, the ice rink will sit pride of place in Market Square, which will be transformed into a winter wonderland for the town’s annual Christmas celebration.

Julie Ward, National Sales Director for McCarthy Stone, said: “Christmas is a time when communities like Amersham really come into their own and celebrate. We are pleased to be able to play a part in this year’s festivities and we hope the ice rink will get everyone who visits the square into the Christmas spirit. The team at McCarthy Stone’s Chiltern Place development wishes the Council every success in its ongoing commitment to providing great events for the people of Amersham.”

McCarthy Stone’s Chiltern Place Retirement Living Plus development offers Amersham 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 – and with an on-site bistro providing freshly cooked meals.  

Facilities at Chiltern Place will include a Communal Lounge, ideal for socialising with new-found friends; a guest suite for when residents have visitors to stay; and beautifully maintained gardens.  An Estates Manager will take care of the day-to-day running of the development, while secure entry systems and 24-hour emergency call points will provide added peace-of-mind. 

Located in the market town of Old Amersham, opposite the River Misbourne, Chiltern Place will offer easy access to the hustle of the Capital, whilst tucked away in the Chilterns Area of Natural Beauty. Known for its beautiful green hills, streams and rivers, residents will be able to enjoy the picturesque scenery, while being within close proximity of the village’s supermarkets, local restaurants and boutiques. 

This Christmas, McCarthy Stone is hosting free ‘At-Home’ Christmas events at selected developments up and down the country.  On Thursday 19th December, Amersham retires are invited to celebrate the festive season at Chiltern Place along with a glass of mulled wine, mince pies and a seasonal soundtrack from 2pm-4pm.
