Life at Sumners Farm Close

The excellent communal facilities, such as dining room, lounge and gardens provide the perfect venue for a host of social activities.

Registered Manager, Sarah Archer, describes the communal spirit as the key point which sets Sumners Farm Close apart:

“There is a strong community spirit at Sumners Farm Close. Through Covid, it was really deflating for resident who couldn’t see anyone. Now though everyone is coming back into the dining room. They are laughing and playing games again.


We have a social activity at lunch time. Everyone comes down into the dining room for lunch and then afterwards they can choose to stay or not. We arrange activities twice a week. Things like bingo where residents can win prizes.”
