St Mary's C of E School lend a hand
Dec. 19, 2012
-- To celebrate the launch of Adlington House, in Heaton Chapel, retirement developer, Adlington, has been working with children from St Mary’s C.E.Primary School, in Reddish, Stockport, to create a ‘hands in print’ collage, which has today been unveiled at the new development.
The pupils, aged between four and 11, used their hand prints to create a colourful collage, and surrounded it with notes describing how they help their grandparents with day-to-day activities, from walking the dog, to washing up and helping out in the garden.
Mrs Irvin, head teacher at St Mary’s C.E. Primary School, said: “It was a fantastic project for the whole school to be involved in and it’s clear from this work that our pupils are very hands-on when it comes to supporting their grandparents.”
Claire Reede, marketing director for Adlington, comments: “Wherever possible, we strive to build relationships within the communities in which we build. It has been great working with a local school to create something so unique and personal for our new development.”
Adlington House has been created in recognition that independence, security and peace of mind are still priorities in later life, yet without compromising on quality.
That’s why the new development of 52 stunning apartments offers a choice of one, two and three bedroom luxury apartments, with beautifully appointed kitchens (which have fully-integrated appliances) and many featuring en-suite bedrooms. Each apartment further benefits from either a walk-on balcony or a patio and the development itself boasts an activity and crafts room, hairdressing salon, lounge, elegant restaurant, reading and computer areas and a quiet lounge with a private garden patio.
Professional care and 24-hour onsite assistance is also available through Adlington’s partner, MHA (Methodist Homes), with its outstanding track record of over 70 years’, providing the highest levels of person-centred care.
