Garden Party Coming Soon At Stafford Retirement Development

Posted 19 July 2021 by Keith Osborne

A summer party at the end of July underlines the importance of gardening to the residents of Deans Park Court...

A retirement developer in Stafford has heeded the call of its green-fingered residents and installed a brand new greenhouse in its gardens, as well as donating gardening equipment to inspire them to continue growing together this summer.

And people are invited to admire McCarthy Stone’s Deans Park Court’s gardens at its summer party on Thursday 29 July between 2.00pm to 4.00pm, where they will be able to join in with drinks and nibbles, as well as have the opportunity to meet the team in the communal gardens, where they can find out more about the apartments and the lifestyle.

Gary Saunders, sales consultant at Deans Park Court in Stafford, said: “At Deans Park Court our residents will be able to cultivate plants and flowers and grow vegetables on the land, working together alongside our professional gardening team.”

Gardening became a particularly popular past-time for many of its residents during the recent lockdowns, and the team at Deans Park Court want to do everything they can to help nurture this into the future.

Saunders continued: “During lockdown many of our residents would spend hours pottering in the gardens, enjoying the fresh air and tending to the plants. It was invaluable to them so we thought we would do something to try and encourage even more of our residents to get involved, and carry on doing so now that restrictions are starting to be lifted. Moving home and leaving behind a large garden doesn’t mean you have to forgo the pleasure of growing your own, and our residents are looking forward to being able to do much more of this.”

The arrival of the greenhouse has been welcomed by one homeowner who used to grow tomatoes before he moved, and is keen to carry on doing this. Another thought he would have to stop growing his favourite sweet peas but he has been able to sow his seeds and they are currently flowering.

Deans Park CourtSue, a homeowner at Deans Park Court, along with her husband, took part. She said: “Volunteering my services in the gardens has really kept me going and given me something to do when we have been locked down. Over this time we have planted so many different flowers and shrubs – it’s now awash with colour for everyone to enjoy and a really fabulous place to get-together and spend time. We have now established a herb garden so we can all use for our cooking and salads.

“I wasn’t much of a gardener before I moved here but what has been great is I’ve been able to help out at my own pace, and whenever I have the time. Anyone can join and get involved whether that’s the odd hour here or there, or on a more regular basis. There’s no pressure and the gardens are for everyone’s enjoyment.

“However you choose to enjoy the garden – from the comfort of a patio chair with a gin and tonic in hand or down amongst the weeds or ‘growing your own’, everyone is welcome to get involved!”

Saunders added: “The retirement community model promotes independence and allows individuals to be as active and engaged as they wish with a host of activities available. We are proud to boast gardening clubs as well as yoga, arts and crafts, games nights, among a range of other activities. Today’s generation of retirees are not content to sit back on the side lines and want to remain active and enjoy their retirement fully.”

All of the apartments at Deans Park Court feature a range of built-in appliances, top-of-the range bathrooms and high-quality carpets and floors. In addition, some apartments also benefit from their own private balcony. At the heart of the development is a new bistro-style restaurant, offering freshly prepared meals, snacks, cakes and coffees daily.

An on-site support team manages everything for you: communal facilities, social events and activities, property and garden maintenance, leaving you free to enjoy the retirement you deserve. You will also benefit from the reassurance of 24/7 on-site emergency response should you ever need it.

One and two-bedroom apartments at Deans Park Court are currently priced from £169,999 and £273,999 respectively. Find out more from McCarthy Stone.
