Basingstoke retirees enjoy live music, Pimm’s and ice cream at Summer Garden Party

Retirees in Basingstoke enjoyed music, ice cream, Pimm’s and sunshine as Churchill Retirement Living hosted a Summer Garden Party at its Austen Lodge in the heart of Basingstoke. The event took place on Tuesday 5th September at the new development on London Road, where social events like this are fostering a close sense of community and apartments are selling fast.

Visitors enjoyed an afternoon of live swing music from local singer Kevin Hill Junior in the attractive communal gardens, as well as Pimm’s, fizz and traditional ice cream. There was also the opportunity to meet the new apartment Owners who are calling Austen Lodge home, and hear about the new lifestyle they’re enjoying.

With apartments available to buy now, Austen Lodge is proving very popular with local over 60s looking to make the most of independent retirement living, with the security, peace of mind, community and support it offers.

Churchill’s Senior Marketing Manager Caroline Haswell said: “Our Summer Party was the perfect opportunity for local people to come and experience first-hand the fun and sociable lifestyle that comes with a brand-new Churchill apartment. It was a beautiful sunny day and we had a host of treats and great entertainment on offer, a perfect opportunity for local people to see for themselves the wonderful community atmosphere we have here.”
