Lifelong friends become neighbours at Algar Court

19 July 2017

Beryl Rossidies, and Janet Denston, have been friends for over 50 years and have shared many memories.  The pair are now closer than ever since they both secured new apartments at McCarthy and Stone’s Algar Court Retirement Living development in Penn.

Making the most of McCarthy and Stone’s Refer A Friend Scheme, where homeowners are rewarded if their friend purchases an apartment, Beryl and Janet now have £2,500 each from the retirement housebuilder.  While they have both enjoyed spending the money decorating their new apartments, Beryl is also planning to use some of the funds when she flies to Bermuda to see her grandson get married later this summer. 

Commenting on the decision to move, Beryl, said: “My son, daughter and granddaughter who live in Wolverhampton looked around Algar Court when it first opened, and were insistent that I took a look myself, saying it was perfect for me. They were spot on.  Janet had already made the move and recommended it to me. We’re both very happy here, and we can relax and still be around our lovely family and friends. We’re very lucky.” 

Beryl, continued: “Janet and I have been friends for a very long time – our husbands were close friends and, when we were both widowed, we became even closer. We go to church together every Sunday and catch up during the coffee mornings at Algar Court. Our friendship has grown immensely since moving to Algar Court, and it can only get better. 

“My family have lived in Wolverhampton for a very long time, my children and grandchildren are so pleased that I’m still nearby and we can all spend quality time together. Moving to Algar Court has allowed me to make new friendships and improve older ones, as well as relaxing at last!” 

All those who make Algar Court their home can also make the most of the stylish homeowners’ lounge; and, should they wish for friends or family to stay over, a convenient on-site guest suite is available. A House Manager is on hand to take care of the smooth-running of the development; while a security entrance system and 24-hour emergency call points give homeowners and their families added peace-of-mind.   

Comprising an attractive selection of 38 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments, Algar Court is proving incredibly popular with Wolverhampton retirees and is now over 65 percent sold. Prices currently range from £165,950 for a one bedroom apartment and from £224,950 for a two bedroom apartment. Algar Court will be holding open days every Saturday throughout August.
