A RETIREMENT development in Cumbria will host a socially distanced 'grand opening'.

Churchill Retirement Living’s Dutton Lodge, Roper Street, Penrith, is staging the event from October 6 to 10.

The development is a collection of 54 one and two bedroom apartments for the over 60s.

They include fully fitted kitchens, built in fridge and freezer, hob and an oven at an easy-reach height.

Anyone interested can book a slot for a tour, with a range of covid-19 safety measures in place, for up to two friends or family members, .

The Churchill team will be on hand to answer any questions visitors may have and information packs will also be available.

Bernadette Hennelly, regional marketing manager for the firm, said: “With the show complex at Dutton Lodge now officially open, interested purchasers can see for themselves the layout and design of the apartments as well as the attention to detail and high quality they can expect from Churchill.

"At the moment buyers can also save money thanks to the temporary stamp duty holiday.

“After months of lockdown we know that many people will be thinking about the future for themselves and their families.

"The Churchill lifestyle offers security and independent living for owners, along with making new friends and being part of a new community.

"I’d encourage anyone who wants to find out more to come and see us now.”

All the properties benefit have easy-turn lever taps in both the kitchen and bathroom and illuminated light switches.

They also have a video entry system, together with a 24 hour emergency call system.

Viewings are by appointment only, for information call 01768 758 814.
