Retirement development named in memory of former colleague

Churchill Retirement Living’s new development in Park Gate has been named Beck Lodge, in memory of local senior architectural technician Billy Beck, who designed the development before he sadly passed away in December 2017.

James Barnes, Regional Managing Director of Churchill Retirement Living, said:

Billy was a popular and highly respected member of our team, who lived in Langton Matravers near Swanage and worked at Churchill’s Ringwood office for three years. We felt it would be a fitting tribute to Billy and his family to name our new Park Gate development in his memory, and hope it will stand as a lasting testament to a dear Colleague who we miss very much.

“We’re proud to see Beck Lodge nearing completion, and excited to see it already sparking a great deal of interest from local over 60s keen to find out more about the benefits of retirement living.”

Anyone wishing to discover more about Beck Lodge and the lifestyle and services offered by Churchill Retirement Living are invited to attend a special event on 7th November between 10.30am and 3.30pm at St Margaret Mary RC Church Hall, Middle Road, Park Gate. Visitors will be able to view the plans for the new development on Botley Road which will comprise 46 spacious one and two bedroom privately owned retirement apartments and shared facilities, designed exclusively for the over 60s.

Anyone wanting to attend the event on 7th November can confirm their attendance by calling 0800 458 1857.

When complete, the apartments at Beck Lodge will boast elegant rooms throughout, considerately designed with the over 60s in mind. The fully fitted, stylish kitchens will include a built in fridge and freezer, hob and an oven, located at an easy-reach height. All of the properties will benefit from easy-turn lever taps in both the kitchen and bathroom and illuminated light switches for added convenience. Owners will also enjoy ultimate peace of mind from a fitted camera entry system for the highest level of security and a 24 hour emergency call system.

With less to worry about, Owners will have more time to do the things they enjoy, including taking advantage of the host of other benefits which will be on offer, such as having family or friends to stay in the development’s well-appointed Guest Suite, enjoying a chat with neighbours, or attending one of the regular social events in the Owners’ Lounge. There will also be a Lodge Manager, employed by Millstream Management Services, who will oversee the running of the development.
