Everyone who attended the Official Opening of Elgar Lodge in Malvern on Friday 18th October had the opportunity to view the beautifully furnished Show Apartment and experience the lifestyle that can be enjoyed at the latest Churchill Retirement Living development, as well as meet Harriett Baldwin, MP for West Worcestershire. The local MP gave up her time to officially declare the Lodge open by the cutting of a ribbon and the unveiling of a plaque in the entrance hall to commemorate the event.
Elgar Lodge is now 50% sold and anyone thinking of buying should visit soon. Those who attended the Official Opening received a warm welcome, with wine and canapés served in the relaxed surroundings of the Owners’ lounge which is the centre of many and varied social activities taking place at the Lodge.
Douglas Jones, Regional Managing Director of Churchill Retirement Living (Midlands), spoke at the event; “As an organisation we continuously strive for excellence and this has been recognised recently by an unprecedented number of industry awards, including Best Retirement House Builder for the fourth consecutive year in 2012 in the UK over 50’s Housing Awards. Here we are delighted that Elgar Lodge won its very own award for the beautiful landscaped gardens.”
Elgar Lodge offers a range of highly specified one and two bedroom apartments, designed for people of retirement age who want to live independently with a little extra security. Like all Churchill Lodges, the beautiful landscaped grounds are professionally maintained, and other jobs such as window cleaning are also taken care of. In addition, there is a 24 hour emergency call line, a Lodge Manager on hand to help, and an Owners’ lounge for socialising.
The development comprises of 33 one and two bedroom retirement apartments, ideally situated for Malvern town centre’s unique mix of high street shops and boutiques. A superb selection of restaurants and cafes provide everything from traditional tea rooms to fine dining. Alongside this there is locally grown produce, antiques, arts and crafts, bookshops and the Malvern Shopping Park that provides a range of larger department stores and a supermarket, which caters for all shopping needs.
Harriett Baldwin comments after an escorted tour of the development “We have a growing elderly population and it is great to have high quality developments such as these close to the shopping centre and with easy access to train and bus services and so close to the local community hospital.”
