Sunrise of Virginia Water, on Christchurch Road, celebrated the grand opening of their newly refurbished community with a very special event.
VIP guest Councillor Parshotam Sohi and his wife Davinder Sohi joined the community to celebrate with residents, family, friends and care professionals over wine and cake.
With lots of entertainment involved, residents and guests enjoyed live music from Mel Lewis playing the clarinet and danced together all afternoon. Guests also tucked in to patisseries made by new Head Chef Julie Hamilton, who showed off her amazing culinary skills and gave everyone a taste of her first-class training from the Waldorf Hotel.
Resident Ambassador Stanley Courtman, who has lived at Sunrise of Virginia Water for the past 11 years, was on hand to cut the ribbon with the Deputy Mayor and declare the revamped community open.
Guests also gathered to hear great speeches from General Manager Jennifer Lewis and Operations Director Tim Buckley, followed by kind words from Councillor Sohi and Mrs Sohi.
Sunrise of Virginia Water provides high-quality, personalised dementia care, respite care and assisted living. With its refurbishment going hand-in-hand with wheelchair-friendly, landscaped gardens, Sunrise look forward to continuing to provide care in a luxury and accessible environment.
Tracy Campbell, Director of Community Relations at Sunrise of Virginia Water, said:
“Everyone at Sunrise of Virginia Water is absolutely delighted with the new look.
“All members of our dedicated care team had a role to play in showcasing our beautiful community and it was great to see residents and guests enjoy the jubilations.
“We’d like to thank Councillor Sohi and Mrs Sohi for opening up our doors and we look forward to welcoming new residents, friends, family members and neighbours to our warm home in the near future.”
