Scottish Comedy Duo Launch McCarthy and Stone Show Complex in Milngavie

23 September 2019

Last week, Ian and Janette Tough, or as the public knows them ‘The Krankies’, officially opened the show complex at McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living development Riverwood in Milngavie.  

As part of the launch event at the development on Craigdhu Road, a packed crowd of local retirees from the Milngavie and surrounding local area heard all about the couple’s life, retirement and their travels as part of the Real Marigold Hotel TV series.  

Ian and Janette Tough, were delighted to be back in Scotland to officially launch McCarthy & Stone’s Retirement Living development in Milngavie as they explain:  “It was really lovely to be back in Milngavie again, and to have the chance to meet and chat to so many people and loyal fans about our careers, our travels and our retirement. We certainly all enjoyed a giggle or two – but that’s what life is all about.” 

As well as hearing from Ian and Janette, guests also took a tour around the new show complex while enjoying a glass of fizz and canapes, plus McCarthy and Stone’s helpful staff were on hand to provide information, plans and prices of the range of apartments that are available

The event was packed full of laughs as Lorraine Paterson, Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone in Scotland adds:  “Ian and Janette are the epitome of how to make the most of your retirement years, and they delighted our guests with their funny tales and experiences.  Our Riverwood development in Milngavie, is designed to ensure over 60s can make the most of their retirement years doing the things they love, and we hope that hearing from Ian and Janette will inspire buyers to make the most of their retirement years. 

“At McCarthy and Stone, we are committed to helping older people stay independent for longer. Retirement Living at Riverwood offers the independence of retaining home ownership, while living in a secure, low maintenance and energy efficient apartment.”

Riverwood is an attractive development of 49 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments, and the popular semi-rural location of Milngavie places retirees in an exceptional area to be able to enjoy the best of the outdoors with the Campsie Fells and the starting point for the West Highland Way on their doorstep.

McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living developments are designed to offer homeowners the very best in independent living within a safe and secure environment, with the opportunity to benefit from companionship when they want it and privacy and assistance when they need it.
