Crowthorne Retirees Enjoy an Afternoon of Pimms on the Patio at Birch Place

27 August 2019

Homeowners and staff at McCarthy and Stone’s Birch Place Retirement Living Plus development on Dukes Ride in Crowthorne recently opened their doors to local retirees for live jazz music and Pimm’s.

Guests who attended the special event spent a fantastic afternoon sipping Pimm’s on the patio, while also enjoying live entertainment, provided by MPR Jazz.

As well as basking in the sunshine with a glass in hand, guests were able to take a closer look at Birch Place. The event provided the opportunity to take a tour of the show complex, meet the McCarthy and Stone team, and chat with retirees who are already living at the development.

Julie Ward, National Sales Director for McCarthy and Stone, said: “Our Pimm’s on the patio event was a great success. Everyone enjoyed having a glass of Pimm’s whilst soaking up the sun on the patio, and MPR Jazz put on a fantastic performance for our homeowners and guests. 

“The event was a good chance for us to showcase the wide variety of activities we host here at Birch Place, and to provide people with an insight into the lives homeowners enjoy at the development.”
