A warm welcome in Heathfield

People aged 55 and over who might be isolated after Christmas are invited to share a home-cooked meal and companionship in sheltered houses run by Abbeyfield South Downs.

Nolan Taylor, chief executive of the charity which has accommodation in Heathfield, Eastbourne, Hove and St Leonards, would like to hear from anybody in need of festive cheer after the big day. He said: “We will be very pleased to welcome visitors to our houses from Boxing Day to January 4, when people start to feel lonely if family events are over.” You can contact Nolan on: 01435 866539.
