A retirement housing village in Abbots Langley played host to a special anniversary of the housing group which runs the properties.
Breakspear Court in The Crescent is run by Aldwyck Housing Group who specialise in providing housing for vulnerable and elderly people who need support.
Aldwyck turned 50 recently having been established in Harpenden, they have steadily and now have over 11,000 homes providing shelter and management services for 25,000 people.
To mark the special anniversary, they chose Breakspear Court as their host venue with numerous people from the local community attending as well as the Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire.
The party started with a rendition of the national anthem being played by a 14-piece band with further musical number from the 1960s to represent the decade when Aldwyck was established.
The anniversary party was a huge success and Aldwyck’s scheme manager, Michael Haruna, explained to My Abbots News how special it was to the residents of Breakspear Court.
He said: “It was a wonderful occasion and the residents really enjoyed hosting the party at Breakspear Court.
“We had great music and special speeches, including by the Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, as well as an array of refreshments.
“I hope it helped inspire the elderly residents of Breakspear Court and helped build trust in the amazing work that Aldwyck do. It was a real community occasion.”
