Whiston Court says thank you with special open event


The Mayor and Mayoress of Worcester were among those who gathered to enjoy guided tours and learn more about Worcestershire’s first not-for-profit retirement community during a special Open Evening event on Tuesday 19th April.

Whiston Court retirement community, on White Ladies Close, off Upper Tything, opened its doors to welcome local businesses, organisations and supporters of the project, who were able to take a look around the new £6 million development, and speak to those behind its launch, over a glass of bubbly and nibbles.

The 37-apartment development has been launched by local charity the Abbeyfield Worcester Society and is the culmination of five years of tireless work by the small group of charity trustees and staff, who had dreamed of creating the county’s first not-for-profit retirement community.

Abbeyfield Worcester Society chairman Gerald Harris said the Open Evening event was a chance for the charity to thank those who had supported the project and to show them the finished development.

“It was a very enjoyable and informal evening and an opportunity for us to show people around Whiston Court, which we are all incredibly proud of, and for them to find out more about it and ask us any questions,” he explained.

“The feedback was all very positive and we are now looking forward to filling the development with residents.”

Whiston Court offers assisted-living, sometimes called ‘extra care’ accommodation for the over 55s, enabling people to retain their independence, but with a range of extra support on hand if needed.

Its range of one and two bedroom apartments are now available through Connells Estate Agents, Worcester.

Whiston Court will open its doors every Thursday from 3-5pm for people to come along, find out more about the development or gain advice and enjoy free tea and cake.  If you plan to attend, call the house manager on 01905 317850.
