Pinner MP Nick Hurd joined Churchill Retirement Living last month to officially open its new Heath Lodge development in Pinner.
Locals visited the lodge on Marsh Road to see Nick Hurd MP take part in an official ribbon cutting ceremony with Churchill’s Regional Sales Manager Jacqui Egan and members of Heath Lodge’s growing community.
Visitors to the event were also given the opportunity to view the development’s show complex, before being treated to a glass of fizz and canapés in the owners’ lounge. The event was also attended by Peter Higginson, a great nephew of the renowned cartoonist and illustrator William Heath Robinson, who lived in Pinner for many years and was the inspiration for the name Heath Lodge.
Nick Hurd MP said: “I was pleased to be asked to open the new Heath Lodge development in my constituency, and it was an honour to cut the ribbon. Retirement properties are a crucial part of meeting the UK’s housing challenge and Churchill’s new development is a significant addition to the housing provision here in Pinner.
“Specialist retirement housing is proven to have a beneficial effect on older people’s health and wellbeing, be it from being in a modern, warm, well insulated home to having a sense of community and helps to beat loneliness. It was also heartening to meet the new Owners now calling Heath Lodge home and hear so many positive stories from them.”
Heath Lodge is a collection of 30 one and two bedroom privately owned retirement apartments and shared facilities, designed exclusively for the over 60s. Offering quality retirement accommodation and safe and independent living, the development is in a convenient location close to local shops and amenities.
