win 235 cash with McCarthy & Stone

The deadline to enter our Droitwich Through a Lens photo competition and the opportunity to see your work published for all to see is fast approaching.

The best entrants will win a cash prize of £350, while the two runners up will receive a £100 cheque each and have their work unveiled at Horton Mill Court’s grand opening. Whether you’re a keen amateur, or just enjoy photography in your spare time – we really want to see what you can do.

Our competition is open for those over 60 and it’s a chance for those interested in photography to explore the town outside their front doors and capture on film the very best that Droitwich has to offer. The finalists will be invited to attend a special ceremony when our new development opens, with the winning photograph being unveiled in March.

How to enter

Those wishing to take part should email their favourite photos, along with their contact details to, or post to Droitwich Through a Lens, C/O Haslimann Taylor, 2nd Floor, Lancaster House, 67 Newhall Street, Birmingham, B3 1NQ. Entries should be submitted no later than midnight on Friday 31st January 2014. All entrants should be aged 60 or over, or be turning 60 prior to the final deadline.

Those interested to find out more about Assisted Living in Droitwich Spa are welcome to join us for our launch event on 11th February.

The development offers the independence of retaining home ownership while living in an apartment specifically designed for the over 70s. In addition, it offers a helping hand through flexible care and support packages, including domestic assistance, that make life that little bit easier.

Facilities at Horton Mill Court will include a shared lounge, an on-site restaurant, guest suite, laundry room and a lift. A dedicated estate manager will ensure the smooth running of the development and staff will be on site 24 hours a day. There will also be a security entrance system plus 24-hour emergency call points to provide peace of mind for both homeowners’ and their families. All properties will be low maintenance and energy efficient. Apartments are expected to be released for sale for purchase off plan in the New Year.
