We were absolutely overwhelmed to welcome over 750 visitors to the new Richmond Witney retirement village at our launch and information open day on Saturday 4th February.
The event was designed to give a real insight into what stress-free living at the retirement village could be like, with Champagne and refreshments served throughout the day to visitors.
Guests had the opportunity to view the new Village Suites, meet David Westerby, the village manager and his team, find out what accommodation is available and view the facilities including the wellness spa, pool & gym, restaurant and bar, library, activities room and terrace café. Escorted tours of the care home for those looking for 24-hour nursing and dementia care were also held.
“We were absolutely delighted by the number of people who came to see us,” said David Westerby, “and hugely encouraged by their positive reaction. We even had several people putting down deposits on properties, as well as making reservations for care home bedrooms.”
“We are immensely proud of what we have achieved at Richmond Witney,” said Paddy Brice, managing director of Richmond Villages, “and I am confident it will become the benchmark for retirement villages in the UK.”
Village Suites start from £235,000 and include a bedroom with en-suite shower room, sitting room and a fully fitted kitchenette. Village suites provide assisted living for those who wish to retain their independence but require some assistance with daily tasks. This means we provide all meals, cleaning and laundry, and all apartments come with an emergency 24-hour call system to the on-site care team, plus wellness spa membership.
“We wanted to give people a real flavour for what living at this all new Richmond village is like, to see what a fantastic social community is developing here, and the exceptional care that is available for those who might need it,” concluded Mr Westerby.
