Crosby retirees enjoy a sweet afternoon at Grove Court

06 March 2018

There was a treat for chocoholics at McCarthy and Stone’s Grove Court Retirement Living development on Moor Lane in Crosby, when the housebuilder recently hosted a chocolate making and tasting event led by chocolatier, Andy Lloyd from Island Truffles and Treats.

The homeowners’ lounge at Grove Court rivalled Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory for the event, which included a demonstration from Andy Lloyd.  Everyone had the opportunity to get involved in the chocolate making, and to savour their own chocolate creations as well as those made by Andy Lloyd.  Homeowners and their guests were also treated to an afternoon cream tea while Andy hung up his apron and performed a rock and roll tribute featuring the likes of Elvis, Cliff Richard and Neil Diamond.

The afternoon also provided an opportunity for the community of homeowners at Grove Court to come together and socialise; and visitors were able to explore the development and find out more about the last remaining apartments.

Fiona Brooks, Regional Sales and Marketing Director at McCarthy and Stone, commented: “It seems there are a lot of chocoholics in Crosby and many joined us for our wonderful chocolate making and tasting event.  Everyone enjoyed an afternoon of indulgence; and with spring now on its way, everyone also took away plenty of ideas and inspiration for Easter treats.

“The event also proved to be a great opportunity for homeowners to get together; and local retirees who are potentially interested in moving to Grove Court were able to get involved in just one of the many exciting and interesting activities that take place at the development.”

Comprising an attractive collection of 47 one and two-bedroom Retirement Living apartments, Grove Court has been thoughtfully-designed exclusively for the over 60s to provide the very best in modern, independent living within a safe and secure environment. Prices start from £194,999 for the remaining two bedroom apartments.

Facilities at Grove Court include a homeowners’ lounge ideal for socialising with friends, beautifully landscaped gardens in which homeowners can relax, and a convenient guest suite should homeowners have friends or relatives to stay. A House Manager takes care of the smooth-running of the development; while a security entrance system and 24-hour emergency call points provide added peace-of-mind for both homeowners and their families.
