The Mayor and Mayoress of Stockport, Councillor Adrian Nottingham and Mrs Diane Nottingham, have officially opened The Folds, a brand new retirement community on School Brow in Romiley.

The grand opening of Adlington Retirement Living’s 50 age-exclusive apartments was celebrated with a sparkling reception in the beautifully appointed restaurant and lounge.

The Mayor spent the afternoon viewing show apartments, discussing the design and construction of The Folds – which won Silver for Best Retirement Development at the WhatHouse? Awards 2020 – and engaging with the on-site team. The Mayor and Mayoress joined new homeowners and potential purchasers to mark the occasion.

He commented: “It was wonderful today to meet so many happy homeowners. The Folds is a superb new development where retirees can enjoy the privacy of their own home in their beautiful apartments, and they also have access to a restaurant, lounge and landscaped gardens. I was really impressed with the facilities and also with the sense of community.”
