Wilson Blakey, Milngavie Community Development Trust and lead organiser of Milngavie Week said: “We were delighted when McCarthy Stone agreed once again to help make Milngavie Week a success by coming onboard and providing the final piece of funding that we needed to host the Senior Citizen’s bus trip. We’re also thrilled to learn they will provide a goody-bag for each person on the trip!
“We’re also grateful to Allander Travel who have hired us a bus at a generous discount, and Friendship House who have arranged the tickets.”
Lorraine Paterson, Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone in Scotland adds: “We are absolutely delighted to be able to sponsor this fabulous trip that will see retirees from Milngavie have the opportunity to visit Loch Lomond and enjoy it’s beautiful scenery, while also enjoying Lomond Shores with its range of shopping and attractions.
“Our Retirement Living development at Riverwood in Milngavie is currently under construction and it will offer those over 60 the independence of home ownership combined with the peace of mind of additional security and low maintenance.
“This means that homeowners can spend more time socialising with family and friends, enjoying the time to immerse themselves in a wealth of activities to keep both the mind and the body active.
“Many of our homeowners have commented on how they have found a new lease of life since moving to one of our developments, and how they are enjoying the benefits of a more active lifestyle.
“With so many community activities, groups and clubs to get involved with, and as the proud sponsor of the Senior Citizens’ bus trip, we’re keen to take an active role in promoting the benefits of a healthy lifestyle in retirement in Milngavie.”
Currently available for sale, the Riverwood development features a spacious homeowners’ lounge, perfect for socialising with friends and new neighbours, beautifully landscaped gardens in which torelax, and a convenient guest suite should homeowners have friends or relatives to stay. Selected apartments have a private patio or balcony. A show complex is planned to open this summer, which will allow buyers to see for themselves how stylish Retirement Living will be at Riverwood.
Riverwood will have its own House Manager to ensure the smooth running of the development, car parking via a permit scheme, a security entrance system, plus 24-hour emergency call points – for added peace of mind for both homeowners and their families.
