Dame Mary Peters officially opens McCarthy and Stone's Singer Court, Paignton

Paignton retirees and their relatives joined former British Olympic champion, Dame Mary Peters CH DBE RNR to celebrate the grand opening of the McCarthy and Stone Retirement Living development, Singer Court.

The development, made up of 54 one and two bedroom retirement apartments, boasts panoramic sea views across to Torquay and Brixham from the communal roof terrace, as well as stylish wrap around balconies, making it the perfect setting to relax and enjoy your retirement.

After enjoying a guided tour of the show apartments and communal areas, Dame Mary, who won the pentathlon gold medal at the 1972 Olympic Games, marked the official opening with a talk on her experiences as an Olympian and sporting ambassador, before enjoying afternoon tea in the homeowner’s lounge with some of the current homeowners and visitors.

Dame Mary Peters said: “It was a pleasure to mark the official opening of the new development at Singer Court. I’ve been an ambassador for McCarthy and Stone for many years now, and I know from homeowners who have already settled into the development how much they enjoy the quality of surroundings and friendly staff there. It was so lovely to get the opportunity to meet and chat with people from the local area. Singer Court really is developing into such a fun and lively community. I’m already looking forward to my next visit!”

The event enabled those people interested in finding out more about life at Singer Court, and who have perhaps considered downsizing, to see for themselves how they could enjoy their retirement in a quality, low maintenance one or two bedroom apartment, and enjoy all the benefits of being part of its thriving community.

McCarthy & Stone’s Retirement Living developments are designed to offer homeowners the very best in independent living within a safe and secure environment, with the opportunity to benefit from companionship when they want it, and privacy when they need it.

Jacqui Meenan, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone, commented: “We were so thrilled to welcome Dame Mary Peters and potential homeowners to Singer Court. At McCarthy and Stone we are proud to help older people stay independent for longer and really make the most of their retirement.

“That is why we are so committed to delivering an exceptional lifestyle for our residents at Singer Court, which boasts a beautiful setting with landscaped gardens, and luxuriously appointed accommodation. What’s more, with all the maintenance of all external and communal areas taken care of, homeowners can spend more time enjoying their retirement with family and friends.”

Facilities at Singer Court include a homeowners’ lounge, ideal for socialising with friends, landscaped gardens in which to relax, 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, a security entrance system, plus 24 hour emergency call points – for added peace of mind for both homeowners and their families.
