AN MP has visited a mental health charity's residential rehabilitation service after a £220,000 refurbishment.

MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford David Evennett visited Chapel Hill in Crayford, run by charity Together after the council and PCT-funded overhaul.

Now the site has 19 fully modernised rooms with en-suite facilities as well as four respite rooms for short-term stays.

The visit last Tuesday was part of an open day for families, friends and supporters, who viewed the work which finished in June.

Project manager Dianne Flower said: "The ethos of Together and Chapel Hill is about helping support our clients to gain and utilise skills to move into the community in an individual needs-led way, by promoting independence and choice.

"The refurbishment means the stay with us can be more comfortable, and that people have more personal space.
