Letcombe Regis village nears completion

Posted on July 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

The very last tile has been laid on the roof of Richmond’s new retirement village at Letcombe Regis. Richmond Villages managing director Paddy Brice and Paul Cann, chief executive of Age Concern Oxfordshire, one of Richmond’s chosen charities, performed the symbolic ‘topping out’ ceremony in September. ‘After many months of planning, development and construction, we are delighted to celebrate this significant milestone, and glad that we could share it with Age Concern,’ said Mr Brice.

‘We are on schedule to open the doors to our first residents early in 2010, and look forward to offering a first class service and outstanding retirement facilities to local people.’

The retirement village, which nestles in landscaped grounds which include lakeside gardens and a nature reserve, will provide a range of one or two bedroom apartments priced from £250,000.
