Lauriston Park showhome opening

Lauriston Park site from Coleridge Street, Leamington

The vast construction site, on the most elevated point in Leamington, that is to be Lauriston Park Retirement Village held a showhome opening this weekend. All very flash – and expensive. An obvious asset to the surrounding community and economy of both Leamington and Cambridge it does suffer one minor crisis of identity. Far from being in Cambridge it is in fact located in Leamington one mighty river away from Cambridge Town Centre. I comment very briefly on the uniqueness of the Cambridge Leamington relationship here.
