Retirement community developer McCarthy Stone announces the names of new Romsey retirement homes in Abbotswood Common Road.

FEEDBACK from locals inspired the name of a UK retirement home developer for its new retirement residence development in Romsey.

McCarthy Stone, one of the UK’s leading developers and managers of retirement communities, has revealed that its new Retirement Living development in Abbotswood Common Road, Romsey has been named Glebe Court.

The exclusive developer asked locals to name the new development, giving them the opportunity to put their stamp on the Romsey community. The winning submission was by local resident, Fern Seaforth, who highlighted Glebe Court for its unique medieval history, Glebe meaning parcel of cultivated land.

The winning contributor said: “I wanted to choose a name that had a connection to the other local road names in the area, and they all have a reference to the medieval period. Romsey started out as a Saxon village and is known to be a historic market town, so it seemed only fitting to include that history in the name of the new development.
