RETIREES raised a glass to the first birthday of a Bridport development. 

Homeowners at Gordon Court, Bridport, came together in good spirits to mark the development’s first anniversary.

They gathered in the communal lounge, where they raised a toast to many more successful years to come.

Guests also enjoyed delicious cakes and a glass of fizz as they reminisced over new friendships and precious memories from the past year at Gordon Court.

Nicki Beswarick, Divisional Marketing Manager at McCarthy Stone, commented: “We had a fantastic time at Gordon Court celebrating 12 months since we opened the doors. It’s such an important milestone for us, and it’s been so lovely to see how the community has grown and grown.”

Clifford Gover, one of the first retirees to move to Gordon Court, said: “After relocating from London to Bridport to be closer to family, I was anxious that I would find the moving in process difficult, but the McCarthy Stone team went above and beyond to help me feel settled and gave me all the information I needed.

"There’s so much to get involved with at Gordon Court, with plenty of clubs and activities to suit different preferences - it’s been lovely to all get together and celebrate a year of being part of this tight-knit community.”
