Thank you to everyone from Queens Road Ladies Group who attended our presentation today at Keynsham Methodist Church. Abbeyfield Trustee and Keynsham resident, Sue Hopkins, together with manager, Charlene Fleck, met with 18 ladies from the Group. Some of the attendees were already familiar with The Abbeyfield Society, and the Keynsham house, but enjoyed listening to the story of the history of Abbeyfield and it’s humble, charitable roots. We also talked through slides, showing photographs of the Keynsham house before, and after, it’s recent fantastic refurbishment. House manager Charlene talked about living in an Abbeyfield house, the blend of privacy and companionship it brings, and the benefits of eating together in older age. We loved meeting the Group and feel we came away with new friends. We look forward to welcoming them all soon for cream tea in the garden.
