Guests joined Morpeth Mayor Nic Best to celebrate the grand opening of McCarthy and Stone’s new Retirement Living development in the town.
After a guided tour of the furnished show apartments and communal areas, Coun Best marked the opening of William Turner Court with a ceremonial ribbon cutting.
He said: “It was my pleasure to officially open the show complex.
“Providing independent living and security is extremely important and with a growing number of people reaching retirement age, I’m delighted developments such as this are being built to provide people with a number of options to make the most out of their later years.”
Exclusively aimed at people aged 60 and over, William Turner Court features a collection of 55 one and two bedroom apartments – currently priced from £199,999 and £259,999 respectively – with only five apartments remaining.
Its facilities include a homeowners’ lounge and a guest suite should homeowners have friends or relatives to stay.
Liz Green, regional sales and marketing director at McCarthy and Stone North East, said: “We are very thankful to Coun Best for officially opening William Turner Court.
“The development has a beautiful setting, with landscaped gardens and luxuriously-appointed accommodation.”
