On Tuesday 13th July, Belmont House Care Home in Sutton celebrated their 5th
year anniversary. Madam Mayor of Sutton, Councillor Trish Fivey, visited Belmont House, to commemorate and congratulate the team at the care home for reaching this significant milestone.
On reaching their 5th year, Madam Mayor of Sutton, Councillor Trish Fivey, said: “Over the years, you have gone from strength to strength, even with the many challenges that comes with providing care. You have supported the local community, building a reputation for providing excellent residential, dementia and nursing care for those in Sutton and beyond. For this I am thankful for.” Madam Mayor had visited Belmont House for their opening ceremony in 2016, alongside the Lord of Sutton at that time, Richard Clifton. In the above photograph, Madam Mayor can be seen cutting a two tiered vanilla and butterscotch sponge cake, which was prepared by the Head Chef of Belmont House, Doris Ceasar.
As part of the celebrations, residents and staff held a cowboy themed party. Belmont House welcomed in a country singer to provide entertainment to those attending the event. Madam Mayor happily joined residents to dance in the ‘Belmont Saloon’. Residents and guests enjoyed games throughout the day, including tin can target practice, roulette and darts.
Arthur Tanare, Home Manager of Belmont House, said: “We were delighted to welcome Madam Mayor of Sutton to Belmont House, it was a great celebration for all those that attended. Over the past 5 years, Belmont House have experienced many highs and just a couple of lows. The resilience, dedication and compassion from staff, especially over the past 18 months make me very proud.”
On meeting the Mayor of Sutton, a resident of Belmont House, said “It was a lovely day and a privilege to meet Madam Mayor. The sun was shining and it was great to have everyone together to enjoy the day”.
