Abbeyfield Week is The Abbeyfield Society’s annual birthday celebrations

Taking place in mid-June, to make the most of the good weather, the charity’s houses and homes up and down the UK are encouraged to take part in Abbeyfield Week by throwing events.

Whether big or small, the parties are a great way to both celebrate our charitable objective of enhancing the lives of older people, and to welcome in the community to see just how interesting and exciting homes can be.
