A LATER living community in Cheshire will be having a 'Summer Celebration' to mark the official opening of 'Phase 3' of the development, with broadcaster Gloria Hunniford set to host.

Gloria Hunniford will be discussing her career in TV and radio through a Q&A, as well as sharing tips on how she stays feeling young and making the most of retirement.

The Summer Celebration will run from 11am to 3pm on August 11 and feature live music, fitness classes and craft demos, classic cars on display, and a barbeque lunch. Guests will also have chance to explore the 39 new apartments and 10 new homes built as part of Phase 3.

Rachel Butterworth, Village Manager at Gifford Lea, said: "We are so excited to welcome Gloria Hunniford to Gifford Lea for our Summer Celebration to mark the opening of our newest phase – the day promises to be full of music, laughter, glorious food and fun."

James Cobb, Director of Inspired Villages, said of the development: "Gifford Lea reflects the needs of today’s retirees, who want to continue living independently, and yet take reassurance from knowing support is available should they need it.

"Just like every Inspired village, the central facilities at Gifford Lea are a focal point for like-minded people to share their passions and interests. We’re proud to offer a way of life which encourages our residents to rediscover lost hobbies – and explore new ones.

"Phase 3 offers even more choice of homes, it’s set to be a wonderful day and will be the perfect chance for visitors to learn more about life at the village and explore the show apartments and fantastic state-of-the-art facilities."

Gifford Lea offers a range of facilities to residents including: a wellness spa with relaxation pool, restaurant, bar, hair and beauty salon, gym, craft room and library/cinema room. Construction of Phase 3 was recently completed by contractor Seddon, with the first apartment block of the new phase completed earlier this year and officially opened by local MP, Edward Timpson CBE.
