“It’s a stunning home and I wish you all the best for it, it will be a great asset to our community here in Charlton Down. I loved the bathroom with the spa bath, I can see myself moving in!”

Helen Freeman said “We were delighted when Country Court offered to make the final donation to complete our fund raising for an additional defibrillator for Charminster. I’m sure there will be lots of opportunities for us to work together in the future”.
