In 2008, the first of a series of public meetings were held in Timboon to establish the level of interest in a retirement complex.
Those meetings were well attended and demonstrated a high level of enthusiasm in the community.
Following this meeting, Abbeyfield Mortlake became involved and the plan was put into place to develop and construct a high quality retirement facility on the block of land at Baxter Street in Timboon.
Timboon Abbeyfield is a subcommittee of Abbeyfield Mortlake. The facility is now well underway and the vision will be a larger sustainable facility providing a variety of independent living options for the aged in Timboon.
This facility currently consists of four, two bedroom units and plans to commence construction of unit five and six are well underway.
These units are built by donations and proceeds of fundraising by the Timboon community. We have a hard working committee in Timboon and it’s great to see the hard work becoming the reality.
