Katherine Fletcher MP enjoys a lively chat with homeowners 

Katherine popped by for a tour of Balshaw Court in Leyland, Lancashire, a Retirement Living Plus development, which offers a mix of one and two-bedroom retirement homes designed to meet the needs of the over 70s. 
Katherine commented: “I really enjoyed coming back to Balshaw Court to meet residents and answer their questions. It was great to visit the place again, having been before during construction, seeing the innovations like solar panels integrated into the roof. I had a really interesting conversation with residents, answering questions about what’s important to them like getting a proper crossing to access the bus to Preston and the new hospital coming to South Ribble…The team running Balshaw Court are doing a fantastic job and it was really nice to hear how much everyone enjoys the community there.”  

Tracey Lowe, Area Sales Manager for McCarthy Stone, added: “It was a pleasure to welcome Katherine to Balshaw Court. At McCarthy Stone, we’re committed to delivering an exceptional lifestyle that offers all the home comforts for a relaxing, independent retirement, along with a choice of social and leisure activities right on the doorstep – and it was great that Katherine was able to experience this first-hand.  

“The homeowners thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the South Ribble MP and learning more about the ins and outs of her role. The energy on the day was a fantastic representation of the strong sense of community that sits at the heart of Balshaw Court.”  

The over 70s are well catered for at Balshaw Court, with stylish, bright, and beautifully appointed retirement flats paired with enviable shared facilities. These include a chef-run bistro serving freshly prepared meals daily and a spacious lounge providing a fantastic focal point for friends and neighbours to come together. There are private landscaped gardens with a homeowners’ gardening club, along with a hotel-style guest suite to accommodate friends and family who wish to stay overnight.
