Mountbatten House - Sparkling Opening

Local retirees joined the Mayor of Dacorum, Councillor Rosie Sutton, last week to celebrate the opening of our new Retirement Living development, Mountbatten House, on Hempstead Road in Bovingdon.

After a guided tour of the brand new show complex and on-site facilities at Mountbatten House, the Mayor marked the development’s opening with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting. She said: “It was my pleasure to be part of this important milestone at Mountbatten House and to see for myself what a fantastic new development it is.

“Living independently and securely is extremely important; and, with a growing number of people reaching retirement age, I’m delighted developments such as this are being built to provide retirees with a number of options to make the most out of their later years.”

The event at Mountbatten House provided an opportunity for people in Bovingdon to find out more about how they could enjoy their retirement in a quality, low maintenance apartment, designed exclusively for those aged 60 and over.  

Caroline Tiernan, Marketing Manager commented: “We were thrilled to welcome the Mayor of Dacorum, Rosie Sutton, as well as familiar faces from the area to Mountbatten House to mark the official opening of the development.

“We are committed to delivering an exceptional lifestyle at Mountbatten House. As such, the development has a beautiful setting with landscaped gardens and luxuriously-appointed accommodation; and, with the maintenance of all external and communal areas taken care of, homeowners can look forward to spending more time enjoying their retirement with family and friends.”
