McCarthy and Stone fairways

This week, Provost Alastair Carmichael, officially opened McCarthy & Stone’s The Fairways Retirement Living development on Clarkston Road in Clarkston, East Renfrewshire by unveiling a commemorative plaque.

Visitors and residents had the opportunity to meet Provost Carmichael before enjoying a tour around the show complex followed by a glass of wine and buffet in the lounge.

Suzanne McElhiney, marketing manager for McCarthy & Stone in Scotland, said: “Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling, which is why we are delighted to have been able to welcome Provost Alastair Carmichael to officially launch The Fairways, and to let him see for himself just how much residents are enjoying their retirement years in style. “We’re keen to show off the many benefits that Retirement Living has to offer at The Fairways, and we’d like to encourage people to visit, take a look around our show complex and see this for themselves.”

Provost Alastair Carmichael said: “I was delighted to be invited along to officially open these wonderful new retirement apartments at the Fairways in Clarkston and to meet so many of the homeowners and their families and friends.

“I’d like to wish everyone who has already moved into their new McCarthy & Stone home or is planning a move to The Fairways a very long and happy retirement living in the heart of Clarkston. East Renfrewshire is an excellent place to retire as it offers so many amenities from shops, cafes and parks, a theatre and sports facilities and it has very good travel links into Glasgow and other parts of the West of Scotland.”
