RESIDENTS of Malpas and Audlem are being invited to join the party this summer at two of the villages' respective retirement homes.

McCarthy Stone developments in Malpas and Audlem will be opening their doors to invite people to come together and raise a glass to better times ahead.

Visitors will be able to join in with drinks and nibbles in the home's communal spaces, as well as the opportunity to meet the McCarthy Stone team where they can find out more about the apartments and the lifestyle on offer.

Guests are welcome to bring along a family member or friends, but must book their place ahead to ensure social distancing.

The event organisers say the afternoons will be organised in compliance with the latest government guidance, with all necessary hygiene and safety measure in place.

In Malpas, the part will be held at The Cedars, on Wednesday, June 23 June between 1pm and 3pm and in Audlem at Lyme Wood Grange on Friday, July 9 between 1pm and 3pm.

Fiona Brooks, divisional sales and marketing director, said: "Traditionally our summer parties are a great opportunity for local people to come and experience first-hand the fun and sociable lifestyle that comes as part of a brand-new McCarthy Stone apartment.

"This year of course things are a little different, but we are thrilled to be able to open our developments once again to visitors, in a safe and controlled way.

"The pandemic has led to a shift in focus for many people, with time to reflect on the suitability of their housing needs, location, and priorities for retirement.

"The McCarthy Stone lifestyle is all about living life to the full and staying as independent and active for as long as possible.

"Come along to your nearest development for a chat and a slice of cake, and to meet those who already call it, home.

"After all, they'll tell you everything you could need to know."
