DEVELOPER Robin Hughes likes things to be 'good enough for mum'.

So it is no surprise that one of the first residents at the new Castle View village development in Helston Lane, Windsor will have his mum Betty Hughes, 85, as one of its first residents.

She said: "Having lived in Windsor since I was 20, I didn’t want to move away from family and friends when I couldn’t manage the stairs anymore in the family home and Robin has ensured I don’t have to.

"Robin has always been enterprising and likes building things. He’d seen retirement villages in New Zealand about 15 years ago and liked the concept. After building a couple for other companies about 10 years ago he told me about his plan of creating his own retirement village in Windsor near our family home including a home for me.

"I knew it would happen given his tenacity."

Mr Hughes is a former pupil at The Windsor Boys School who has worked in the property and care sector for over 20 years. He is the founder and chief executive of Castle Retirement Living which built Castle View.

He said: “For me, everything about the development from start to finish has been attention to detail in every aspect which has to be ‘good enough for Mum'."
