McCarthy and Stone Supports Local Heritage at Cobham Heritage Day

24 September 2019

McCarthy and Stone, the developer behind the Holly Place Retirement Living development on Cobham High Street, has recently become one of the sponsors of the Cobham Conservation and Heritage Trust to help them run the Trust’s annual Heritage Day. 

Visitors to the event were treated to over 90 different activities and attractions, including a classic and vintage car display, circus skills workshops, live music and face painting, as well as its signature duck race. The team from McCarthy and Stone were also on and to join in the fun as the official sponsors of the Pimm’s stall on the Leg O’Mutton Field.

Elizabeth Kennedy, Chairman of the Heritage Day Committee, commented: “The Cobham Heritage Day was a huge success this year, with families coming from all around the local area to join in the fun. We would like to thank the team at McCarthy and Stone for their support in helping us to make the day so enjoyable for those that came along.” 

Julie Ward, National Sales Director at McCarthy and Stone, added: “As a company, we appreciate our responsibilities go further than building quality retirement apartments, and we also seek to create a positive legacy in the communities in which we build.  

“The Cobham Heritage Day is a fantastic event which sees the whole community join together for a fun-filled day, and we were delighted to be able to lend our support.”

McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living developments are carefully designed to enable the over 60s to maintain an active and independent lifestyle, in a safe and secure environment. Homeowners at Holly Place benefit from on-site facilities including a Club Lounge; ideal for socialising with friends; a landscaped patio terrace on which to relax; and a comfortable Guest Suite, should friends or relatives come to stay.  

Located in the heart of Surrey with easy access to London, Cobham has a bustling atmosphere and convenient transport links. Homeowners at Holly Place will benefit from being located on the High Street, surrounded by a choice of restaurants, coffee shops and retail outlets including two banks, a pharmacy and a Post Office. 

For the first time, older people in Cobham will be able to choose from a range of flexible retirement living solutions to suit them and their personal circumstances at Holly Place, whether they prefer to purchase outright, rent, or take advantage of McCarthy and Stone’s part buy, part rent option.
