Celebrating 55 years of providing homes for the over 55s…

Sutton Housing Society was first registered as a housing society on 19 February 1964; we therefore turned 55 years old in February 2019 and celebrated this with many residents from across our schemes by holding a launch party at Trickett House.

Our core business is housing for older people or the over 55s. We have therefore decided to celebrate being 55, both as a business and what you can achieve as an individual.

We will deliver 55 events throughout the course of the year, including a 55th event at the 2019 AGM. These events help to promote our core work i.e. housing for older people and the benefits this brings.

We are very grateful and appreciative of the sponsorship for various events received form many of our partners – consultants, contractors and service providers.

If you have any questions about our “Celebrating 55” initiative, please contact us at info@shsoc.org.uk
