Laura Pittaway, Divisional Marketing Manager at McCarthy Stone, said: “For some, Christmas can be a difficult time to navigate, which is why we at McCarthy Stone are especially keen to bring the wider community closer together and spread the festive cheer.

“We’re looking forward to opening our doors at Priory Place, where retirees from Studley are invited to enjoy fizz, food, and friendship, to help them get into the Christmas spirit. The event is also the perfect opportunity to shine a spotlight on the thriving lifestyle that sits at the heart of every McCarthy Stone development.”
