Debbie McGee Joins Walton-On-Thames Retirees for Summer Garden Party At Edward Place

26 July 2019

The people of Walton-on-Thames joined ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ Star, Debbie McGee, for a summer garden party at McCarthy and Stone’s Edward Place Retirement Living Plus development on Churchfield Road.

Debbie McGee joined homeowners and guests at the new development, which features a stylish collection of privately-owned one and two bedroom Retirement Living Plus apartments. Guests who attended the special event enjoyed a fantastic afternoon sipping cocktails in the development’s landscaped gardens, while also enjoying live entertainment from MPR Jazz.

Attendees at the garden party had the opportunity to chat with Debbie one-on-one, and to meet the friendly McCarthy and Stone team at the development. Guests also had the opportunity to find out more about how they could enjoy their retirement in a quality, low maintenance apartment, designed exclusively for those aged 70 and over.   

Speaking of the event, Debbie McGee commented: “It was an absolute pleasure to join local people for a summer garden party.  I enjoyed meeting guests and staff, and it was great to see first-hand what a fantastic development Edward Place is and the many benefits it will bring to retirees.”

Julie Ward, National Sales Director for McCarthy and Stone, said: “We are very proud of Edward Place and it was our pleasure to showcase this superb new development with such an enjoyable event. 

“The event was a good example of the wide variety of activities we host here at Edward Place and to provide people with an insight into the lives homeowners enjoy at the development. The McCarthy and Stone team would like to say thank you to Debbie McGee – and all of our visitors – for joining us.”
