Shrewsbury locals are invited to exclusive ‘Taste the Lifestyle’ afternoon tea event

Retirees in Shrewsbury are invited to an exclusive opportunity to experience what it’s like to be a homeowner at McCarthy Stone’s Summerfield Place Retirement Living development on Wenlock Road, when it opens its doors for an extra special ‘Taste the Lifestyle’ tour and afternoon tea event. 

Attendees at the event, which is being held between 12noon and 3pm on 22nd June can enjoy a unique opportunity to tour the development’s garden and social spaces, meet the team and view the show apartments. Once they have experienced a taste of the McCarthy Stone lifestyle, they can then enjoy the flavours of a Great British afternoon tea, which will be served in the development’s beautifully landscaped gardens. Alternatively, guests can take away their afternoon tea box to enjoy at home.
