Celebrity gardener to host grand opening of Olney's newest retirement community

Fans of the BBC’s Garden Rescue are in for a treat this month following the announcement that Charlie Dimmock, a regular fixture on daytime TV schedules, will be joining local retirees in Olney to celebrate the Grand Opening of a new McCarthy Stone Retirement Living Plus development on Teedon Lane.

Taking place at Penny House on Thursday 30th November between 1pm and 4pm, the popular gardening guru is set to give an exclusive demonstration on creating the perfect Christmas display bowl, before performing a ceremonial ribbon-cutting to mark the development ‘officially open’.

Attendees will have the opportunity to get to know the real Charlie in a candid Q&A session in the stylish communal lounge, where they can enjoy a glass of fizz and delicious light bites from the on-site bistro, followed by live entertainment.

Throughout the day, the McCarthy Stone team will be on-hand to offer a guided tour of the community, allowing prospective homeowners to discover the development’s wealth of facilities and services designed around making life easier.

Those wanting to attend must reserve a place in advance by calling 0800 153 3435.

Sam Watkins, Divisional Sales Director for McCarthy Stone, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be able to welcome Charlie Dimmock to officially open our fabulous new development in Olney. We expect that she’ll be a real draw for those living locally and wishing to find out more about the retirement lifestyle on offer here.

“Our low maintenance, energy-efficient apartments allow homeowners to enjoy their independence, with the added benefit of communal areas for socialising with neighbours.  As a result, Penny House is fast becoming a thriving community of retirees and everyone is very excited about the Grand Opening and the chance to show this off.”
