OLYMPIC legend Dame Mary Peters is to be guest of honour at the official launch of a new ‘Later Living’ development in Saffron Walden.

Dame Mary, pentathlon gold medallist at the 1972 Olympic Games, will formally mark the opening of the McCarthy & Stones’ show complex at Gabriel Court on Tuesday (February 12) and will take a guided tour of the fully-furnished apartments and guest suite.

Those choosing to accompany Dame Mary on the tour will get the unique opportunity to meet and talk with the great lady herself, before joining her for a glass of bubbly.

McCarthy & Stone’s regional sales manager Julie Ward said: “Dame Mary continues to be an inspiration for the older generation and is a shining example of someone who appreciates that age is something to be celebrated and enjoyed.

“The official opening of Gabriel Court’s show complex signals an important milestone in the development’s history, so we were delighted to have someone of Dame Mary’s stature join us to help mark the occasion in style.”

McCarthy & Stone is currently selling 27 one and two bedroom Later Living apartments exclusively for the over 60s at Gabriel Court. Prices start from £249,950.

Its Later Living developments offer the independence of retaining home ownership while living in an apartment specifically designed for later life.
