I was delighted to be invited to visit Abington Lodge retirement housing in Northampton recently to meet residents there.
Abington Lodge holds regular coffee mornings with its residents for them to catch up and create a lovely social environment. The area was very peaceful and quiet and the housing and grounds were very nicely maintained.
I had an hour chatting with some of the residents who were all in good spirits, and clearly know each other and the staff very well.
I very much enjoyed our conversation, and I answered many questions on my role in government and parliamentary procedures among others.
