To mark the official opening of Castle Gate, John Glen MP, will join McCarthy and Stone CEO, John Tonkiss, for a tour of the new Retirement Living development before meeting the first residents.


John Glen MP commented: “I’m very much looking forward to visiting Castle Gate. I’m really keen to see what the completed development looks like and to meet some of the retirees who will be calling it their home – it is set to be a great day.”
