Charlie Dimmock first shot to fame in 1997, when she joined the gardening series Ground Force. Since then, she has presented many programmes such as The Joy of Gardening and Charlie’s Garden Army. Charlie is currently a member of the presenting team on Garden Rescue, a series focusing on garden transformations.

The exciting event will take place at the development on London Road on Wednesday 28th July from 11am-3pm. Guests will be treated to strawberries and cream in Loddon House’s landscaped gardens before Charlie makes a special appearance at 12pm. Charlie will then entertain guests with a gardening demonstration, providing advice and inspiration for colourful planting schemes that will bloom all year round.

Event attendees can ask the TV presenter their own gardening queries as part of a Question-and-Answer session and there will be an opportunity to take a picture with Charlie during a socially distanced meet and greet.

Attendees are required to book in advance to secure a space on the guest list by calling 0800 310 0383.

Charlie Dimmock said: “I’m really looking forward to the event at Loddon House. I can’t wait to meet everyone and answer their gardening questions and as well as sharing tips during my demonstration.  It will be a fun day.”

Verity McKay, Divisional Marketing Manager at McCarthy Stone Southern, added: “Gardening can have such a positive effect on mental wellbeing, and after what has been such a difficult year for many, we’re delighted to welcome Charlie Dimmock to Loddon House.

“We’re really looking forward to bringing the local community together again. With the weather improving, it is the perfect opportunity for our homeowners at Loddon House and retirees in the local area to join the McCarthy Stone team in the development’s landscaped gardens and share gardening tips with the TV expert.  

“We’d like to invite local retirees in the area to join us for an afternoon of summer celebrations – not only will they have the chance to meet Charlie, but they can also enjoy delicious strawberries and cream, socialise and have fun.”

Loddon House is an ideal retirement living option for retirees aged 60 and over. The development features a spacious communal lounge, landscaped gardens, and a convenient hotel-style guest suite for when friends and family come to stay. A House Manager takes care of the smooth-running of the development, while a security entrance system and 24-hour emergency call points provide added peace-of-mind for homeowners.

Prices at Loddon House currently start from £450,000 for a high-specification two-bedroom apartment, for those who want to purchase outright. Rental and part-buy part-rent options are also available.

More than nine out of 10 customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 16 years’ running. McCarthy Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade for 16 consecutive years, which is every year the awards have been run.  

McCarthy Stone also received the Housebuilder Special Recognition Award 2020 for working hard to protect its customers – Covid-19 infection rates among homeowners are significantly below the national rate of infection across all age groups – and for innovation in the retirement sector.
