Retirement Living Testimonials
Roger Axtell

Roger Axtell

Oscar Lodge, Aylesbury

"I'm a big advocate of the Churchill lifestyle. I proudly carry my Churchill branded shopping bag into town and I'm always telling people how great it is here. Moving house can be a scary process, but Churchill did everything to make it easy, like hooking us up with a specialist downsizing adviser called Michael. He was absolutely brilliant at helping us plan what to bring and what to leave behind, and giving us confidence that all the little details were covered."
