Retirement village’s Forties inspired fete is a sweet success

There was a musical meander down memory lane for residents, staff and visitors to Charters Village during its fabulous 1940s inspired summer fete.

The rain was not enough to put a dampener on the event, which helped to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D Day Landings, and attracted huge interest over the weekend.

Part of the Retirement Villages Group, Charters Village in East Grinstead welcomed the fantastic Candy Girls, who delighted an enthusiastic audience with some best-loved songs from the Wartime era, against the stunning backdrop of Charters Towers.

The event also gave the chance for people thinking about moving to a retirement village to chat with existing residents about the unique and idyllic lifestyle on offer, enjoy refreshments, and discover more about retirement living in a community setting.

They were also encouraged to explore Charters Towers – a beautiful clubhouse with a stunning galleried lounge – 16 acres of perfectly kept gardens tour the currently available one and two bedroom privately owned apartments and bungalows.

Exclusive facilities and services at Charters Village include restaurant, bar, library, conservatory, shop, hairdressers, doctor’s surgery and guest suites.

Retirement Villages Group regional sales manager Chris Buck said: “Despite the poor weather, we had a fantastic turn out and everyone really enjoyed themselves; with wonderful entertainment in the impressive Charters Towers. The Candy Girls really set the scene for the D Day commemorations, and had residents and staff on their feet. In addition, our sales advisors were very busy during the weekend – showing many visitors around the village and celebrating the excellent facilities we have here.”
