Hundreds of people have registered their interest in a new £10.5m retirement living scheme in Stourport town centre, new figures reveal today.
Bromford says more than 280 people have signalled their interest in School Gardens – a scheme featuring 60 high-quality retirement living apartments for over 55s. Construction work is well underway at the historic site where Tan Lane Infants School, and later Stourport First School, stood for decades from 1897. As part of the development, the original school building is being renovated and converted into three apartments.
A marketing suite is due to open onsite in March 2017 and once prices are confirmed the application process will open to prospective residents. The range of one and two bedroom apartments will include options for rent or purchase and there will also be a café bistro, lounge, activity studio, gym, hair and beauty salon, landscaped gardens and ample car parking.
Bromford hosted a Christmas party on Tuesday 13th December where more than 100 potential residents enjoyed 40s and 50s classics from swing band the Bluebird Belles. Hits at Stourport Manor Hotel included Doris Day’s ‘Que Sera Sera’ and Bing Crosby’s ‘White Christmas’.
Penny Downing, marketing and sales director, said: “We truly believe School Gardens will give people a new zest for life. There will be lots of facilities on site for people to stay fit, active and healthy but there will also be onsite care and support for residents that need it.
“We know it’s a big step for people and we want people to feel reassured and energised throughout the whole process and take that fear factor away for them. That’s why we want to take the time for prospective residents to get to know us and us to know them.
“We’re delighted by the interest being shown by so many people and it just reinforces our belief that our new retirement living homes will become popular fixtures in our communities – combining bespoke care packages with a vibrant and lively place to live and grow. For us it’s important to have a balanced, diverse community of people and that’s why we will take absolutely everything into account when we start receiving application forms.”
