The former owner of a Sheringham hotel will talk about its history at the grand opening of a new retirement complex built on the site.
Hilary Stevens, who once owned the Beaumaris Hotel which occupied the site on which Beaumaris Court now sits, will also perform the ceremonial ribbon-cutting duties.
Now more than 80pc sold, the gated development on South Street comprises 30 privately-owned retirement living apartments for the over 60s and was built by McCarthy and Stone.
Retired people in the area can attend the opening and enjoy a glass of fizz, between 11am and 4pm on Thursday, November 1.
The Beaumaris Hotel was founded by Rose Lee and her daughter Mary Turner, and opened in 1947. It was passed down the family tree to Hilary Stevens and her husband Alan in 1991, before closing in 2015.
