Twenty-one Abbeyfield committee and board members recently received…
Congratulations to Martin Stephenson and Terry Foster, who have been recognised for their outstanding contribution to Abbeyfield. They have received the Royal Patron’s Award – an award made by The Abbeyfield Society in the United Kingdom. Just three of these awards were given out this year outside of the UK.
Terry, pictured left, has played a leading role in the development of Abbeyfield across New Zealand, and has been actively involved in the construction of 5 Abbeyfield houses, providing expertise in housing design and project management on a voluntary basis. He has also served as secretary and chair of Abbeyfield Auckland and is a director of Abbeyfield Properties Ltd.
Martin has been involved with Abbeyfield Auckland for more than 15 years as treasurer and maintenance co-ordinator, and takes an interest in the lives of every resident at the Abbeyfield Auckland house.
The awards were presented at the recent Abbeyfield New Zealand national conference.
