RESIDENTS got the chance to inspect progress on their new retirement village, just over the road.

Croftside House, in Doxford Park, Sunderland, is to be replaced by an £11.6million retirement village.

Fred Dymond, 71, and Reuben Caile, 86, had the chance to visit the site before they move in.

The new retirement village, due to be completed in July next year, has an extra care facility as well as 40 extra care apartments, 40 older persons’ apartments and 14 bungalows.

The two residents have been involved in the project from the beginning and, along with other Croftside residents, named the extra care home Haddington Vale and the adjoining bungalows Knightswood.
