Residents and supporters celebrate the opening of new retirement development

A new retirement living development has been officially opened in Market Harborough by a former President of the Methodist Conference.

Rev Alison Tomlin, who lives in the town, cut the ribbon of Welland Place, one of the newest services from MHA, the national charity providing accommodation, care and support to 16,000 older people.

Welland Place has 100 one and two bedroom apartments for people over 60, with individualised care and on site support available 24 hours a day and options for sale, rent or shared ownership. Facilities for residents include a gym, spa, swimming pool and landscaped gardens.

Residents and local supporters were welcomed by MHA Board Member Norman Mann, followed by a thanksgiving service with contributions from residents and the local Methodist Church. The ribbon was cut and a celebratory buffet lunch was served.

Manager Richard Haddon commented, “We offer privacy and independence with total peace of mind, the best of both worlds, in a community of like-minded friends and neighbours.  Several people have already become firm friends and the new community is growing and evolving all the time.  Apartments are still available and we offer ‘try before you buy’ which allows people to sample life at Welland Place before they decide.”

MHA also offers residential and dementia care at Aigburth care home in Oadby, Leicester.
