The Perry Tree Centre
The Perry Tree Centre is the first of a new range of buildings developed as part of Birmingham City Council's plans to improve older people's services.
The centres are designed to be centres of excellence, in particular for people with dementia, providing short term care and support for older people. The long-term accommodation is on the ground floor and operated by Birmingham City Council, while the short-term care and support for older people is provided by NHS Birmingham East and North on the first floor.
The royal opening
On Thursday 9 October 2008, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal officially opened the the Perry Tree Centre. During her one-and-a-half hour visit, Her Royal Highness met with new residents and representatives from Birmingham City Council and partner organisations.
The name of the centre
The location of the Perry Tree Centre was originally the site of local authority homes, until they were demolished as part of a wider regeneration of the Perry Common area. Before this, part of Perry Common was once used by monks from a local monastery to grow perry trees.
Chosen from several names put forward by the Witton Lodge Community Association, the Perry Tree Centre is now firmly part of the local community and the wider constituency.
