We welcome Colne Valley MP
Staff and tenants at Sandy Mount Extra Care Scheme in Huddersfield were delighted to welcome Jason McCartney, MP for Colne Valley, to a special celebration at the service this weekend (Friday 6th February).
Sandy Mount Extra Care, a state-of-the-art 41-apartment complex, provides a modern and spacious environment for older people to live as independently as possible, with flexible care and support available to meet their needs. Sandy Mount was officially opened in October by the Mayor of Kirklees, Cllr Ken Smith. Care and support at Sandy Mount is provided by Community Integrated Care.
Jason came along to Sandy Mount as a guest at the service’s ‘Pies and Peas’ Supper event, with fantastic entertainment from Huddersfield Youth Brass Band. Jason took the time to speak to tenants and other guests about issues in his constituency, with plenty of discussion on the agenda in the run-up to this year’s general election.
David Shaw, Regional Manager for Community Integrated Care, says: “It has been our pleasure to welcome Jason to Sandy Mount, and are thrilled to be able to introduce him to this brand new service.”
In partnership with Kirklees Council, we’re delivering truly life-enhancing support to those who live here, and as an influential figure in our community, Jason understands the importance of the work we’re doing.”
Speaking after the event, Jason said: “I was delighted to be invited to Sandy Mount in Crosland Moor to meet residents and staff.”
“The brass band music, courtesy of the Huddersfield Brass Youth Ensemble, was excellent fun and followed up by a tasty pie and pea supper. Residents and staff alike had a truly enjoyable evening and I’m looking forward to future events.”
