Vendors comment 
Nine years ago Dorothy and her late husband Clarence moved into Flat 7, following their son, Peter , carrying out some voluntary work at the Town Thorns development. Dorothy and Clarence were at a stage in their life where they were looking for no more property or garden maintenance, along with somewhere peaceful they could enjoy the retirement but also have care when required. Having lived at their previous property for 58 years the move was a little daunting but their fears were set aside by the warm welcome their received at Town Thorns from the residents and staff. Dorothy likes the fact that she can make her own choice and there is always something going on. Dorothy and Clarence's only regret was that they didn't make the move 10 years earlier.

Special features 
Heating, water, garden maintenance, cleaning, window cleaning and building insurance is all including and weekly fee of £63.16 is charged.
