This year on May 3rd Highlands are beginning the celebrations to mark the 30th Anniversary of the opening of Abbeyfield Deben Extra Care Society when our first residents moved in.

We will start with a party for the residents and volunteers and later in the year we will hold a celebration Garden party to mark the event

This Charitable Society was formed in 1980 by Charles Notcutt, William Jacob, John Moorby and John Chapman. They purchased the old Haywood family home, Highlands in Fitzgerald Road, Woodbridge.  This was altered and extended, opening in May 1983, initially for 17 residents, but later enlarged to accommodate 24. Highlands retains its warm family atmosphere and provides care for our residents. The house is aptly named as it has a fine view from its attractive gardens over the River Deben. We have 9 full time and 42 part time staff as well as 9 volunteers and a cat called Purdy. There are currently 3 residents who are centenarians

 Coffee morning at the
Deben Yacht Club

Wind and showers fail to dampen support for the Highlands Care home coffee morning held and Deben Yacht Club on Wednesday.

Members of DYC and Friends of Highlands enjoyed coffee and cakes and in the process raised £489, which with other donations means the re-launch of the Friends of Highlands has nearly £1500 towards funding further improvements for the benefit of the residents. Many thanks are due to all those who supported the event
