New Development in Ewell

Our Local Society

The Cheam Society was set up in 1975 by a group of people from St. Andrews United Reformed Church. A large private residential house at 82 York Road was purchased with money raised locally and a grant from the Housing Corporation. The house was converted into bed-sitting rooms for eight residents and opened in 1980. A second house at 82 Mulgrave Road was similarly converted and opened in 1984.

Over the ensuing 26 years, both houses have been improved and up-graded to meet modern standards. All rooms now have en-suite bathrooms and kitchenettes, and both houses have a lift to upstairs rooms.

Since opening, we have enjoyed the company of 70 delightful older people, many of whom lived in our houses for lengthy periods, the record being 20 years.

In 2008 the Cheam and Epsom Societies merged our third house - in Ewell Village - was added to the portfolio in January 2008.

More recently, in 2014, Nonsuch Abbeyfield merged with the Purley Society and in 2015 became Abbeyfield Southern Oaks.  Nonsuch Abbeyfield remains as an entity and will be key in developing a new Extra Care Home in Ewell Village.

The Abbeyfield Purley Society, which was formed in 1963, has one house conveniently situated in Purley with a large conservatory overlooking an attractive garden.
