|What is it trying to do ?|
Abbeyfield is a national organisation providing housing for elderly people - it is in fact the largest provider of homes in the voluntary sector. There are some 1000 ABBEYFIELD homes throughout the UK run by local volunteers supported by the National organisation. The local societies are either registered or exempt charities.
|The ABBEYFIELD ESK MOORS SOCIETY was set up in 1999 by a group of local residents from the Upper Esk Valley. There is scant provision for older residents of the valley to remain in the valley when they become unable to manage by themselves or when, often by the loss of husband or wife, they become lonely, so having lived many years here, they have to leave familiar surroundings, their friends, their doctor and their minister. So the society was formed. The Executive Committee consists of 15 residents of the valley. The Chairman is Mrs. Linda Lloyd of Castleton.|
The aims of the ABBEYFIELD ESK MOORS SOCIETY are:
A large new building in the National Park ? Is this possible ?
