It's not often that someone comes around and makes you feel welcome wherever you are and is a calming influence over all around them, but those that do can easily become a wonderful friend. As made obvious by the amount of people that came to his leaving party (around 30!), Surbash was clearly that kind of person. The tables were laid out nicely and people came pouring in to greet Surbash and say their farewells in case it was the last time they see him.

Before tucking into a fine selection of food, Scheme Manager Maria presented Surbash with a present from all at Lench's Close as something to remember them by; a photo album with pictures of him and other residents at memorable times during his life at Lench's Close. The party later came to a close after everyone had ate, but Surbash is someone they'll always remember.

I have been here for a very long time, two years at Quinton and ten here. I'm very grateful for everyone, they've all been very kind to me.
