Farnham Common locals recently joined residents at McCarthy Stone’s Heathlands Retirement Living development to get into the Christmas spirit, and enjoy a live performance by the choir from St Mary’s Farnham Royal Church of England Primary School.

The pupils took centre stage to entertain Heathlands residents and their guests, with their sparkling showcase of festive favourites and Christmas carols.

The event was part of McCarthy Stone’s series of ‘At Home’ events, which are happening at selected developments across the UK throughout December, and have been inspired by the social tradition of days gone-by that sees friends and family gather at home to celebrate the festive season. Everyone who attended also had the opportunity to take a tour of the development, meet with residents, and find out more about the lifestyle that McCarthy Stone offers.

Julie Ward, National Sales Director at McCarthy Stone, comments: “Everyone who came along to the performance by St Mary’s Farnham Royal Church of England Primary School had a wonderful time, the children are all very talented and really got our Christmas off to a fantastic start!

“I’d like to thank the choir for coming along and helping us host a joyful event. It was a great opportunity for locals to see for themselves what a close-knit and supportive community we have here at Heathlands.”

Comprising a selection of 20 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 60 and over, Heathlands provides everything retirees could want for a relaxing retirement.  

Residents at Heathlands benefit from on-site facilities including a communal lounge; ideal for socialising with friends; landscaped gardens in which to relax; and a comfortable guest suite, should friends or relatives come to stay.  A dedicated House Manager takes care of the day-to-day running of the development; while a secure entry system and 24-hour emergency call points provide added peace-of-mind.

More than nine out of ten customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 14 years’ running.  McCarthy Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade for 14 consecutive years, which is every year the awards have been run.
