Gill Sabin, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy & Stone, commented: “Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling, and starting construction of our Later Living development marks an exciting milestone in helping the over 60s in Grantham make the most of later life. When complete, the apartments will be low maintenance in design and will benefit from modern fittings, good security and will have a number of specialist features.”
