Carlyle Court celebrates big 3-0

Crowthorne retirement housing scheme, Carlyle Court, celebrated its 30th anniversary(July) in style with a party for residents and their families.

An Elvis Presley impersonator provided lively entertainment and residents and their guests joined in, singing along with the familiar classics. They enjoyed a celebration afternoon tea and a special cake followed by dancing and games.

The party also celebrated 25 years of residence for Netta Taylor, who is the scheme’s longest residing tenant.

Netta was presented with a lovely bouquet of flowers and said: “I have always lived in Crowthorne and was born in a house just around the corner from Carlyle Court in 1930. I have a lot of friends around the area and in the scheme, and love living in Carlyle Court, with its friendly community and I feel very happy and safe here.”
