On Wednesday, October 18, between 1.30pm and 4pm, David will give an insightful talk on his life as one of TV's most prominent antiques experts and provide stories from his extensive career.
He will also be joined by current homeowners at Whitaker Grange to perform a ceremonial ribbon-cutting to mark the development ‘officially open’, and to kick-start celebrations for the new community that has already been formed.
Retirees, along with friends and family, are invited to attend the event where they can also make the most of a tour of the show apartments at Whitaker Grange, with fizz and light refreshments being served in the communal lounge.
Guests and homeowners will be able to relax and mingle, as well as enjoy live entertainment from Singer, Sandy Smith.
Throughout the day, the McCarthy Stone team will also be on-hand to answer any questions.
