A launch event for the Richmond Aston-on-Trent luxury retirement village and care home in South Derbyshire has proved to be one of the most successful for the company, with well over 400 people attending.

“Designed to give a real insight into what stress-free living at the village could be like, we were delighted by the level of interest,” said Philippa Fieldhouse, managing director of Richmond Villages.  “It was definitely one of the best events we have held, and we have sold two Village apartments as a direct result.”

Now fully opened, the launch gave visitors the opportunity to be among the first to view this brand new £40 million retirement village, which features all the facilities that have made other Richmond villages so popular.  These include a wellness spa with swimming pool and gym, hair and beauty salon, a library, IT room, terrace café, quality restaurant and garden bar, and a croquet lawn set within beautifully landscaped grounds.  Activities, events and a village transport service are also provided.

Throughout the day there was the opportunity to view the retirement apartments and the state-of-the-art care home.  The retirement village provides two types of apartments; large one and two bedroom Village apartments which provide an independent lifestyle, and Village suites which offer assisted living for those who wish to retain their independence but require some assistance with daily tasks.

Joanne Wilson, the village manager, and her team met guests and introduced them to the village and its many facilities.

“We are immensely proud of what we have achieved at Richmond Aston-on-Trent and I am confident it will become the benchmark for retirement villages in the UK,” said Joanne.
