Celebrating 50 years of Lincoln Court

Tenants living at Lincoln Court

celebrated 50 years since it opened with

a birthday party on Thursday 3 August.

Over 40 people attended the party

which took place in the lounge area

of Lincoln Court. There was a buffet

lunch, games and entertainment

throughout the afternoon which

everyone enjoyed.

Edna Moore, resident at Lincoln

Court, said:

I've had a really nice time at the event, there's

always something going on here to get involved in.

The atmosphere is definitely the best thing about living at

Lincoln Court, it's great.

Helen Wright, Support Services Manager at Ongo, said:

2017 is a milestone year for us here at Ongo. It's 10

years since we became a housing association, so it's

been great to be able to celebrate this big milestone year

for Lincoln Court too. We love organising events like these,

seeing everyone getting together to have a good time.

We're committed to reducing social isolation for our older

tenants, and putting on get togethers like this is a great way

to do that.
