Seventy people attended the event on May 11. The grandson of the founder gave a talk about the project in its early days.

Housing warden Sue Pratt said: "The cream tea, singing, sharing of memories and the prayers for the future made it a great afternoon. We thank God for all that is past and trust Him for all that is to come."
