A golden moment in Gosport - Olympic legend, Dame Mary Peters opens retirement complex

04 December 2017

This week saw Gosport retirees joined by an Olympic sporting legend – Dame Mary Peters CH DBE RNR to mark the opening of a new Retirement Living complex in Gosport, McCarthy and Stone’s Viewpoint.

Dame Mary Peters who won the women’s pentathlon gold medal at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, was joined by staff, homeowners and their relatives to perform a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the grand opening of the development.

Dame Mary also delivered a talk on her sporting past, before stopping for a bite to eat and a chat.

Dame Mary said: “I was delighted to be invited to Gosport for the opening of Viewpoint. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to chat to homeowners there, reminisce about the good old days and share my gold medal with them. I was so inspired by some of their stories and I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the ribbon-cutting and opening celebrations of what is truly a remarkable development.”

Kim Caldwell, Regional Sales and Marketing Director at McCarthy and Stone Southern, commented: “We were thrilled to welcome Dame Mary Peters, as well as the homeowners to celebrate the opening of Viewpoint and give it the golden treatment it deserves. We are committed to delivering an exceptional lifestyle and, as such, the development enjoys a prime location with access to a superb array of local amenities, and the highest specification fixtures and finishes throughout.”

Now fully reserved, Viewpoint features 48 modern apartments with wide reaching views over the picturesque harbour area of Gosport. Viewpoint offers contemporary Retirement Living to those over 60, carefully designed to offer a flexible, independent way of life for homeowners, and with easy access to Portsmouth city centre.

Each apartment at Viewpoint has sea view balconies and fully fitted kitchens, offering modern and intelligent design as standard. Facilities also include a Club lounge, which enjoys spectacular views of the waterfront and is ideal for socialising with friends, and a convenient guest suite should homeowners have friends or relatives to stay. The development also benefits from its very own House Manager, who ensures the smooth running of the development.
