Homeowners at McCarthy & Stone’s Dane Court in Congleton recently enjoyed a special event to celebrate the first year’s anniversary of the Retirement Living development’sofficial opening,with Dame Mary Peters DBE as guest of honour.

The event was an opportunity for homeowners and visitors alike to meet a former British Olympic champion, while celebrating the blossoming community, which has grown ever since the first homeowner moved in 12 months ago.

Sue Brereton, Sales Consultant for the firm, said: “It was brilliant to have Dame Mary here to help celebrate the development’s first birthday. The day was extremely enjoyable and everyone raised a glass to the happy times they have already spent and shared together in their new homes- and to those that are yet to come.”

Designed specifically for the over 60′s, Dane Court is situated minutes from the beautifully restored parkland in the district of Mill Green,adjacent to the banks of the River Dane and offers beautiful scenery in the form of Congleton Park.
