A young crane enthusiast has enjoyed a VIP tour, demonstration and toy crane from the Adlington Retirement Living team working on the new retirement community, The Sidings, on Wharf Street in Lytham.

Wayne Green, Adlington Retirement Living site manager, said: “Our crane operator, Manny Marfo, spotted Findlay and his mum pointing at the crane. The little boy seemed fascinated by the ‘crane moves’ so Manny put on a demonstration for him. Findlay was really pleased and his mum, Kitty Bouman, called the office to thank us and asked for Manny’s name so she could thank him.

“We thought it would be nice to invite him along to the site so he could meet Manny, see the building site and ask any questions he wanted to about the crane. We also bought him a toy crane of his own so he can put his new knowledge into practice!”

Due to open in the Autumn of 2022, The Sidings will comprise 65 retirement living apartments for the over 55s, featuring a Homeowners’ lounge, table service restaurant, hairdressing salon, therapy suite and fully maintained gardens.

A selection of one, two- and three-bedroom apartments will be available, all designed to make everyday life easier, safer and more comfortable.

Alexandra Johnson, Sales and Marketing Director for Adlington Retirement Living, said: “Being part of the local community is really important to us, so I’m really pleased that the site team have managed to go the extra mile for Findlay and his mum.”
