FirstPort’s Llys Pegasus in Cardiff wins silver at national awards


Retirement development Llys Pegasus, managed by FirstPort Retirement Property Services, has won a silver award, for the consecutive year running, at the National Housing for Older People Awards.

The residents of the development, located in Llanishen, Cardiff, celebrated their win at an awards ceremony at Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham.

More than 10,000 residents from across the UK voted in the awards which are managed by the national housing charity for older people, the Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC). In total, three FirstPort developments won an award, with a further five additional development commended.

Keith Shields, Managing Director of FirstPort Retirement Property Services, commented: “I am delighted that Llys Pegasus has once again been recognised at the EAC awards. It is testament to the excellent sense of community and the residents that the scheme has been awarded silver, a brilliant outcome and very well deserved.”

Paul Keohane, Development Manager at Llys Pegasus said: “It is an absolute pleasure to receive two EAC awards in as many years. I will continue to provide excellent customer service for my residents at Llys Pegasus and it is because of the hard work we have put in that we have had so many positive comments and votes. The real winners are the residents because this awards ceremony is a celebration of retirement living.”

John Galvin, EAC’s Chief Executive, explained the importance of the awards: “Specialist housing for older people plays an enormously significant role in helping them stay independent for longer. The security, support and great communities have a positive impact on individuals and reduce the need for NHS services.”
