The fires are electric and produce that lovely real fire effect.
The girls have been invited to take shots of Windsor, buildings, people, action shots, lifestyle, artistic angles etc. The winner's picture will be framed and displayed in Castle View when we open in October.
Lisa also spent time explaining the project and progress at Castle View. All the girls will be invited to come on site in the summer to see for themselves the retirement village unfolding and give their verdict on our fabulous show apartments.
In the meantime we can't wait to see their interpretation of Windsor life through their photos. Good luck girls!

Last week, potential residents were treated to the CEO of Castle Retirement Living, Robin Hughes and our Financial Director James Sarmencanic, getting involved at Windsor Waitrose. Chatting to local residents about Castle View and living in Windsor.
If you see us around and want some answers then the top management are usually not too far away!
Come and say hello and give us some feedback
We don't want to just serve any old food we want to serve the food that you want to eat, at prices you want to pay.
To make sure we get it right, some volunteers from Windsor Boys School, as part of a wider school project, have designed a questionnaire for our potential residents. You will see them out and about in Windsor collecting information about your favourite meals. Do stop and chat to them if you see them.
The scaffolding will start to come now in sections and is due to be completely clear in March.
It is looking fabulous and just like the all the architects pictures and CGI's that we've worked with for so long. This picture shows the care home nearest to the road and roundabout. The independent living apartments are nearer the tennis club, away from the road.
We're definitely on our home run and still on schedule to open Oct 2018.

Potential residents enjoyed a site visit and the rooftop views at Castle View. Don't look up the crane is passing overhead!
Site visits are exciting at Castle View as progress is rapid, but it is a working site and building work is going on around us. Thought it might be interesting to see an action shot with the crane in full view overhead.
We had a beautiful day for the rooftops views. The Sky Lounge is already beginning to come into its own.
If you fancy coming to the next site visit, join us Thursday 22nd February 11am Windsor Tennis Club.
