Abbeyfield in Torrington has celebrated 30 years of caring for the elderly community.Four of the original committee members visited the home to join the celebration. Abbeyfield Torrington began thanks to a start-up fund in the 1980s of £150 from The Rotary Club of Torrington. Glen Tor was purchased in 1984 for £64,000 and opened in 1986. Since then, 75 residents have lived there. To celebrate its birthday Abbeyfield enjoyed a buffet and birthday cake with residents, supporters of the charity and the mayor.
