McCarthy and Stone - Greenwood Grove

McCarthy and Stone, the UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, has announced that its new Retirement Living development in Greenlaw Village in Newton Mearns will be named Greenwood Grove

Indeed, the name was selected following a joint project between McCarthy and Stone and St Cadoc’s Primary, where the children were set the challenge to create a new name for the development.

The name Greenwood Grove, which was proposed by primary 7 pupil Francesca Martin, was finally chosen as the winner from the fantastic selection of entries that were received.  Francesca was inspired to create this name because she likes the relaxing feeling of trees and she thought this would be a great name for the development.

Caroline Lynch, deputy head of St Cadoc’s Primary said: “We are happy that Francesca won with her entry and are delighted with the additional school prize of £250! We haven’t decided on how to spend the money but will do so in consultation with the pupil council. We thank McCarthy and Stone for asking us to take part in the competition as we all had fun researching the history of the local area.”

Construction of Greenwood Grove, located on Crookfur Road in Greenlaw Village, Newton Mearns is now well underway and on completion, the development will comprise a selection of 68 stunning one and two bedroom apartments exclusively for over 60s.   

To mark the naming, the first development signage board has been produced to show how McCarthy and Stone will now begin to use this name in all its marketing for the development.

Rosemary Giovino, Regional Sales and Marketing Director at McCarthy and Stone in Scotland, commented: “It is important that all our developments have a name that is fitting to the local area. The local area of Newton Mearns enjoys a peaceful and relaxing location so we are pleased that the name of our new development reflects the quiet setting of the area, and hope this name will bring the development to life for any homeowners interested in securing one of these quality and low maintenance homes for themselves.”
