On the left residents from Woodcote with their new bench and on the right Broadland Housing Director Ivan Johnson cuts the ribbon to officially open the new relaxation area.

Residents of Woodcote Sheltered Housing Complex celebrated their 25th anniversary with a special afternoon that saw the official ribbon cutting for a new seat and a first floor relaxation area.

There was also a celebration cake as residents toasted the past 25 years.

"Broadland Housing has provided the bricks and mortar but it is the residents that make Woodcote a home and this is a lovely place to live," said Broadland Housing Director Ivan Johnson who officially opened the new seat which has been donated by Broadland Housing and also the new relaxation area.

Scheme Manager Steven Baxter explained that the first floor relaxation area had previously been a blank space which has been transformed into an area of soft seating with music available and a place where residents can relax away from the main lounge.

Resident Jackie Laker, who cut the official birthday cake, said residents were very pleased with the new area where they could meet and chat or sit and read.

Scarcely had the 25th anniversary celebrations finished when the complex played host to more visitors in a special family and friends evening.
