A Torrington charity brought together its supporters to celebrate 30 years since its opening.

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.
