Retirement in bloom at Elgar Place

09 April 2019

The arrival of spring was celebrated at McCarthy Stone’s Elgar Place Retirement Living development in Maidenhead, when homeowners and staff became gardeners for the day at a potted plant masterclass led by representatives from Braywick Heath Nurseries.

The club lounge at the development on Bridge Avenue was at its blooming best, as everyone took part in a flower arranging workshop. All those who attended the event had the opportunity to put together a selected of spring potted plants, under the supervision of experts from Braywick Heath Nurseries, who shared their passion for all things spring planting.

Everyone also enjoyed a selection of tea and light refreshments, while they took the time to admire each-others’ seasonal arrangements.

Kevin Sims, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone South East, said: “With the dark days of winter behind us, it was wonderful to bring homeowners and members of the local community together at Elgar Place for a very spring-like celebration.

“We certainly have a lot of talented homeowners here – the spring potted plants were rather spectacular – and the many green-fingered retirees at Elgar Place, made the most of the opportunity to learn a new skill in gardening, just in time for spring!” 

Comprising a selection of 38 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 60 and over, Elgar Place provides everything homeowners could want for a relaxing retirement. 

The shared social lounge and roof terrace are perfect for socialising with new neighbours and for making the most of the warmer days ahead, and homeowners can feel secure in the knowledge that the House Manager is on hand to provide any help or support should they need it.

Set in a prominent location, Elgar Place is close to local amenities, including a Waitrose supermarket and the local high street, which has an array of cafes and shops. For those who wish to travel further afield, the development offers easy access to Windsor, Reading and Henley-on-Thames.
