McCarthy Stone, the retirement developer behind the latest Retirement Living Plus Market Harborough development, Elizabeth Place has given Meadowdale Primary School a huge boost with a £500 donation towards its forest project. 

The school’s on-site forest has been designed to enable the pupils to get outside and learn more about the environment, as well as take care of the forest’s resident chickens. The donation will help to maintain the forest, and was presented to the school by residents of Elizabeth Place, who also shared some of their gardening tips with the younger generation.

Liz Martin, Head of School at Meadowdale Primary School, said: “We are so grateful for the generous donation from McCarthy Stone, it will really help us continue to develop our forest project that our pupils have really taken to. It was really great to see the residents chatting with the children as well and sharing their knowledge.”

Samantha Watkins, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone Midlands, added: “We are delighted to offer Meadowdale Primary School our support with their forest project. Not only does it provide a boost to the local school it also offers our residents a chance show off their green fingers.”

Comprising a selection of 58 one and two-bedroom Retirement Living Plus apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 70 and over, Elizabeth Placeoffers retirees the opportunity to maintain an independent lifestyle, while also having access to tailored domestic and personal assistance packages– and with an on-site bistro-style restaurant serving freshly prepared meals daily.

Facilities at Elizabeth Placeinclude a stylish communal lounge, ideal for socialising; beautiful landscaped gardens in which to relax; and a guest suite, which provides a comfortable stay for visiting family and friends.  Designed to provide complete peace-of-mind, there is an Estates team on-hand around the clock, along with a security entrance system and 24-hour emergency call points.

Located just one mile from Market Harborough town centre, residents at Elizabeth Place benefit from easy access to local amenities such as a bank, pharmacy, post office and independent cafes and restaurants. The development is also ideally situated close to public transport links, which connect the development to the high street in five minutes.

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.
