In January 2016 Cllr Moira Butt was made aware that Sutton Council had put in place a Promoting Independence Officer to help the Borough’s residents to become more independent and to help them socialise, make friends and stay fit and healthy.
Moira organised a meeting with the Officer and Wallington Wellbeing Group to see how we could start this in Carshalton Beeches and from there on it went from strength to strength, after getting our message over to residents what we were trying to do and a small committee was formed who met regularly to put this idea into motion.
We launched our group on 23rd November 2016 having an Open Morning at the Baptist Church and invited over 25 Exhibitors from all groups and services in Sutton, from Queen Elizabeth Foundation to Towns Women's Guild, during 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, Carshalton Tennis Club (Beeches Avenue), Neighbourhood Watch, Baptist Church Banstead Road, Diamond Centre, Carshalton Fields Doctors Surgery, Carshalton Beeches Residents Association, Oaks Way Seniors Centre, Lavender Oaks Care Home, and of course residents whose views are vital, one of whom having put together this website.
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 help running fund-raising events rather than just applying for grants to assist our residents to become Happy and Healthy.
We have many Whatsapp groups for the Beeches,
Carshalton-on-the-Hill and Carshalton Village.
