In January 2016 Cllr Moira Butt was made aware of Sutton Council's placing a Promoting Independence Officer to help residents to become more independent, socialise, make friends and stay fit and healthy.
Moira met with the PI Officer and Wallington Wellbeing Group to take the idea into Carshalton Beeches, going from strength to strength after making residents aware of the aims. A small committee was then formed, meeting regularly to put this idea into action.
We launched our group on 23rd November 2016 with an 'open morning' at the Baptist Church with over 25 Exhibitors from all Sutton's groups and services, including Queen Elizabeth Foundation and Towns Women's Guild at which we gave out our first What’s on Calendar. Watch this space for our new calendar when current restrictions are lifted.
Today we have a committee from leaders of local groups,

Cllr Moira is proud to say that she holds the office of President with a wonderful team from the group as Officers, whom we cannot thank enough for all their ideas and helping to running fund-raising events, rather than just applying for grants, to assist our residents to become Happy & Healthy.
We have many Whatsapp groups for the Beeches,
Carshalton-on-the-Hill and Carshalton Village.
