Cheese and Wine - Elgar Place
Sip Sip Hooray! An Afternoon of Cheese and Wine Tasting at Elgar Place 

11th March 2020

Maidenhead retirees recently enjoyed an afternoon of cheese and wine tasting at McCarthy Stone’s Elgar Place Retirement Living development on Bridge Avenue.

Elgar Place residents were joined by members of the local community to sample a fantastic array of cheese and wine, while also finding out more about their favourite nibbles and tipples. 

Julie Ward, National Sales Director for McCarthy Stone, commented: “We are delighted that so many people from the local community were able to join residents and staff at our Elgar Place Retirement Living development for a fun afternoon of cheese and wine tasting.

“The event provided an opportunity for residents to socialise and to expand the already vibrant community at Elgar Place; while visitors were able to explore the development and find out more about the remaining apartments.  It was a great way of involving Maidenhead retirees in just one of the many exciting and interesting activities that take place at Elgar Place.” 

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

The communal lounge is perfect for socialising with new neighbours and the landscaped roof-top terrace provides an ideal place to relax. Residents can feel secure in the knowledge that the House Manager is on hand to provide any help or support should they need it; and that friends and family can stay over whenever they choose in the development’s comfortable guest suite.

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.
