The UK’s leading developer and manager of retirement communities, McCarthy and Stone, has announced construction is set to commence at its forthcoming Retirement Living Plus development on Aspect Park in Swindon, which will eventually feature a collection of one and two bedroom privately-owned apartments for people aged 70 and over. 

Ahead of the build programme getting under way, McCarthy and Stone is appealing to local people to enter its ‘What’s in a Name’ competition, and to suggest a name for the new development. The winning entrant will be granted the opportunity to attend the official opening as well as receiving a cheque for £200. 

Ciara Hilley, Divisional Marketing Manager for McCarthy and Stone Southern, said: "We are inviting people from the local area to name our latest Retirement Living Plus development in Swindon. We are looking for a name which will be relevant to the local community; and it can be anything from suggestions honouring local landmarks or scenery, to names incorporating elements of the town’s rich history. Simply submit your ideas by Monday 8th July to be considered for the prize, and to put your stamp on a little bit of future history in the town.”

To be in with a chance of naming McCarthy and Stone's new development and to win £200, all you have to do is email mccarthyandstone@mccann.com with your suggested development name and the reason behind it.  Please include ‘Swindon’ in the subject header, and also include your name and contact details in the email. The competition is open to people of all ages from the local and surrounding areas and the deadline for entries is Monday 8th July.

McCarthy and Stone’s Swindon development will provide everything the over 70s could want for an enjoyable and independent retirement. 

The development will feature a homeowners’ lounge which provides space for socialising with new friends and neighbours, landscaped gardens maintained by McCarthy and Stone, and a bistro restaurant serving freshly prepared meals daily.  An estates team will be on hand around the clock, and flexible domestic and personalised care packages will be available for homeowners which can be tailored to provide varying levels of support according to individual needs. 

Apartments will be available to buy off-plan from summer 2020 and prospective purchasers are urged to register their interest now to receive updates.

More than nine out of ten customers would recommend McCarthy and Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 14 years’ running.  McCarthy and Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade, which is every year the awards have been run.
