Debbie McGee - North London - Edward house - Hertford

The people of Hertford joined ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ Star, Debbie McGee, to celebrate the grand opening of McCarthy and Stone’s new Retirement Living Plus development, Edward House, on Pegs Lane.   

Debbie McGee joined homeowners and guests to perform the ceremonial ribbon-cutting at the new development, which features a stylish collection of privately-owned one and two bedroom Retirement Living Plus apartments. Designed exclusively for those aged 70 and over, McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living Plus developments give homeowners access to a little extra support if required.

Attendees at the Edward House official opening 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 honour of being among the first to take a look at the professionally-styled show complex, elegant club lounge and bistro restaurant, all whilst enjoying a glass of fizz.

Speaking of the event, Debbie McGee commented: “It was an absolute pleasure to mark the official opening of McCarthy and Stone’s new Retirement Living Plus development in Hertford, and to meet with guests and staff. It was great to see first-hand what a fantastic development Edward House is and the many benefits it will bring to retirees.”

Simon Pendlebury, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone North London, said: “We are very proud of Edward House and it was our pleasure to showcase this superb new development with such an enjoyable event.  Everyone had a great time raising a glass to commemorate this important milestone; and the McCarthy and Stone team would like to say thank you to Debbie McGee, for performing the all-important ceremonial duties.”
