19th April 2015

Chris sat with the residents and talked with them about living at Hurstleigh, which produced enthusiastic responses about their lives here and the dedicated staff.  In return he outlined his committed and interesting term of office as Council Chairman; he said that he had not visited Hurstleigh before and was delighted to have been invited.hurstleigh-homes-2.jpg

Chris said: “I was delighted to meet staff, residents and committee members at Hurstleigh. The residents could not speak more highly of the staff who enable them to have supported independent living. We were able to sit outside on a beautiful day.”

 Hurstleigh was founded 50 years ago next year; it is a non-profit making charitable trust of 21 flats, which provides independent living, in a secure environment, for retired people, most of whom have a connection to Chorleywood.
