PUBLISHED: 20:00 10 December 2010
SANDFORD’S new retirement village has been recognised as the best of its kind in the UK.
Sandford Station, which provides care and accommodation for more than 200 elderly people, won the Most Outstanding New Continuing Care Retirement Community award in the 2010 UK Over 50s Housing Awards.
The village, which was built by the St Monica Trust on the site of Sandford’s Old Station, offers a wide range of facilities for its residents, including a restaurant, swimming pool and library.
Gerald Lee, director of St Monica, said: “We are really pleased to receive this particular award which is important because it recognises the value afforded many people as they get older in being able to live in an environment that can support them, whatever their future health needs.”
