Ottery St Mary locals recently joined residents at McCarthy and Stone’s Tumbling Weir Court Retirement Living development on Tumbling Weir Court to get into the Christmas spirit at an exclusive free festive event.

Those who came along were treated to mouth-watering mince pies and a warming glass or two of mulled wine, while socialising with the friendly community at the development.

The event was part of McCarthy & Stone’s series of ‘At Home’ events, which were happening at selected developments across the UK throughout December, and had been inspired by the social tradition of days gone-by that sees friends and family gather at home to celebrate the festive season. Everyone who attended also had the opportunity to take a tour of Tumbling Weir Court and find out more about the lifestyle that McCarthy and Stone offers.

Geoff Bates, Head of Marketing at McCarthy & Stone South, comments: “Everyone who came along to our ‘At Home’ event had a wonderful time. It was a great opportunity for locals to see for themselves what a close-knit and supportive community we have here at Tumbling Weir Court, whilst getting into the festive spirt.

“I’d like to thank everyone who visited our development and helped to get our festive season off to a fantastic start!”

Designed for the over 60s, Tumbling Weir Court will feature a communal lounge, which will be perfect for socialising with new neighbours. A hotel-style guest suite will be available for visiting family and friends. A House Manager takes care of the day-to-day running of Tumbling Weir Court, while a secure entry system and 24 hour emergency call system provided added peace-of-mind.
