Retirement home residents were treated to an afternoon at the opera.

Jonathan Stirland, a sales executive at the home by day and opera singer in his spare time, put on a specular theatrical performance at McCarthy and Stone’s development in Beaumont Way, Hazlemere.

Opera-enthusiasts who attended the event were able to take a closer look at Trinity Place, meet the McCarthy and Stone team, and chat with retirees who are already living at the development.

Mr Stirland said: “I thoroughly enjoyed warming up my vocal chords for the homeowners, and our afternoon at the opera was a fabulous success.

“The event was a great chance for us to showcase the wide variety of events and activities we host here at Trinity Place and to provide people with an insight into the lives homeowners enjoy at the development.”

The development is for over 60s.
