Chris will be at the development, located at Meadowside in Storrington, from 2pm until 4pm, on Friday August 1 to sign copies of his new book, ‘100 plants that almost changed the world’, as well as meet homeowners and guests.

Julie Ward, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone, said: “We’re all very excited that Chris will be visiting our Storrington development.

“Despite no longer keeping their own gardens, many of our homeowners are still green fingered and like to keep their hands-in by creating their own potted creations, or enjoying the beautiful landscapes here at the development. It will be great for them to be able to get some quality tips for keeping their fingers-green in later life from an award-winner like Chris.”

Chris Beardshaw helped create an award winning garden for McCarthy & Stone at last year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. The garden was designed to help challenge pre-conceptions of later life whilst honouring the experiences and knowledge of the UK’s growing aging population.

Foxmead Court offers a collection of spacious one and two bedroom apartments located in the pretty market town of Storrington. The development has been designed exclusively with the over 60’s in mind, and provides luxury living for those wanting to benefit from a more modern, hassle-free way of life.

Each apartment features a number of helpful features, including raised height electrical sockets to reduce bending, a 24 hour emergency call system, and energy efficient underfloor heating.

In addition, the development benefits from a stylish lobby with a security entry system, a lift to all floors and a dedicated concierge service – all set within its own landscaped gardens with a modern decked terrace.

There is a cosy shared lounge area which is perfect for relaxing and a sleek self-service coffee bar which offering the ideal setting for socialising with friends, family and fellow homeowners. Prices start from £257,950.

Foxmead Court’s sales office is open Tuesday to Saturday, from 10.30am to 5.00pm.
