Thank you SO MUCH to the wonderful women from the Mother’s Union for inviting us to talk after their AGM at St Peter’s Church Henleaze, yesterday. The manager of Abbeyfield houses in Redland and Henleaze, Suzanne MacKenzie, and marketing manager Jules Appleby, received a lovely welcome and enjoyed talking to the group about the fascinating history of Abbeyfield and it’s founder, Richard Carr-Gomm.

Thanks to Mrs Perry for organising everything, and also to Abbeyfield’s Henleaze-house cook, Mandy, for making delicious shortbread for the visit. We hope to welcome all the ladies from the Mother’s Union to one of our retirement houses soon for coffee and a tour.
