Churchill Retirement name its new development on York Road – Tatterton Lodge
A new living development for retired people in Wetherby has been named in memory of a community hero and former resident.
The Churchill Retirement Living development on York Road has been called Tatterton Lodge in honour of John Tatterton BEM who died last November.
Born in Wetherby, Mr Tatterton served as the town police officer for 30 years before retiring to become the local handyman and volunteering in a number of community roles for another 15 years.
The new Lodge name was suggested by winner Mrs Harris as part of a competition run by Churchill Retirement Living to name its new development.
Mrs Harris said: “The Lodge’s name honours and celebrates John’s selfless contribution to Wetherby, through many years as a community constable with a cheerful smile and advice. He was a friend to many and would help anyone. One of life’s true gentlemen.”
Rachel Walsh, Regional Sales Manager for Churchill Retirement Living, said: “Churchill likes to involve the local community in choosing the names for its developments and often does so by running a competition asking for suggestions.
