MP Lord visit to Horsell Lodge

Jonathan Lord, MP for Woking and member of the Conservative Party, paid a visit to our Horsell Lodge care home for lunch on Friday 16 October 2015.

Mr Lord was elected the parliamentary candidate for Woking in September 2009. He is former Deputy Chairman of the Surrey Conservatives and before moving to Surrey seven years ago, was Councillor and Deputy Leader of the City of Westminster. During his eight years in Westminster he chaired the Environment and Housing Committees. He is a patron of local charities in Woking and the surrounding area, and enjoys helping and advising local voluntary sector

Jane Starr, Home Manager at Horsell Lodge, said: “Our residents and carers so looked forward to the visit. We welcomed Mr Lord warmly at the door, and introduced him to some of our lovely residents and their families.”

She added: “Mr Lord talked to Eddy Lawther, relative of Dorothy who has been a resident at Horsell since February 2007. He then joined residents around a table for lunch, having homemade steak and ale pie which was ‘lovely’ he said.”

The home offers long-term residential and dementia care as well as convalescence care, trial stays and short stays.
