23/12/2014 - First residents move in for Christmas

Mrs Norma Poole is delighted to be one of the first residents to move into Maywood in Wombourne.

Norma, at almost 90 years old, has lived in Wombourne for over 50 years and was pleased to be able to move into the two bedroom apartment at Maywood just in time for Christmas.

The location of the apartment is ideal for Norma who likes to keep in touch with her friends locally and is a regular face in many of the village’s shops.

She said: “I love Wombourne and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. Both of my children went to school around the corner from here. I’m happy that I’m able to stay close to my friends and the local amenities that I use, like the butchers.”

ShireLiving apartments are perfect for people, like Norma, to continue to live independently as they get older; they offer the peace of mind of having someone onsite 24 hours a day and a range of facilities to enjoy such as residents’ lounges and a café.
