A TV and radio broadcaster is hosting a Q&A at a new retirement community in Hampshire. 

Gloria Hunniford will be at Ampfield Meadows on Thursday, June 20, from 11am to 1pm, to celebrate the opening of the show home. 

When complete, the village will have 149 flats for over 65s around a village centre designed to promote resident wellbeing and help them live healthy, independent lives for longer. 

The day will also offer an opportunity for people to explore the plans of the first phase of the village and its state-of-the-art facilities which consists of 57 retirement properties, as well as a village centre that includes a swimming pool, sauna, gym, studio, cinema, craft room, restaurant, private dining, café, bar and shop.
