Dinner with partners at Oake Manor Golf Club

Mon 10th June 2019 at 19.00 - 22.00

Farewell to Jill Byford, manager of Abbeyfield

27 Members and 26 visitors including many retired Club Members attended the meeting at Oake Manor. The occasion was a formal farewell and thanks to Jill Byfield on her retirement as Manager of the Abbeyfield Extra Care Home in Taunton. Three Abbeyfield past Chairmen of Trustees - Michael Lloyd Davies, Derek Smalley, Stephen Jenkins and current Chairman Gary Davies gave us their personal memories of Jill and Abbeyfield over the past 32 years. The story of the Club's involvement in the Abbeyfield project from 1984 was well told from the original beginnings to the current position with 44 Residents and 55 Staff.

Jill was in charge throughout this time, and she updated us on her memories of her 32 years at Abbeyfield. President Keith thanked her for her contribution to the success of Abbeyfield and presented her with flowers, gifts, and the very best wishes of all Club Members in her retirement. Well done Jill and enjoy your retirement!
