Newly appointed Lodge Manager Bill McCallister will soon be welcoming his first new apartment Owners as they move in over the coming months. He says: “I’m a few weeks into my new role as a Lodge Manager here at Orchard Lodge, it’s a new beginning for me and I’m looking forward to helping my Owners start a new beginning of their own here. Along with our Sales Executive Jeremy, my job as Lodge Manager is all about creating a safe, enjoyable and fun environment for our Owners to enjoy their new lifestyle, making it as friendly and welcoming as possible for everyone. We’d love to meet anyone who wants to drop in and see for themselves what Orchard Lodge has to offer.”
Each apartment is fully self-contained with its own front door, ensuring peace and privacy. They come with fully integrated kitchens, a guest suite for use by visiting family and friends, and a comprehensive 10-year Building Warranty Guarantee. Security is paramount, with a Lodge Manager based on site and a secure camera entry system used around the clock. All the apartments benefit from a comprehensive 10-year Building Warranty Guarantee.
Situated in the heart of the town, owners have the benefit of being close to local amenities such as a post office, supermarket, hairdresser and bank, as well as regular public transport links to Bath and Swindon. Owners can also enjoy a regular market selling local produce.
Caroline Haswell, marketing manager for Churchill Retirement Living’s South West region said: “Orchard Lodge is the ideal place for the over 60s to spend their retirement. The development offers a safe and secure place for residents to spend their time and allows them to become part of a thriving community of like-minded people. Recreational activities are aplenty in the area with the Atwell Motor Museum close by, and for the more outdoorsy retiree, lovely walks can be taken through the recently restored Castlefields Canal and River Park. Keen cyclists can also take advantage of connections to the North Wiltshire Rivers Route, a part of the Sustrans National Cycle Network which can lead to Chippenham along the old Calne railway route. Apartments are available to be reserved now, so we’d urge anyone looking to make a move to Churchill to visit us now.”
