Members of the Thame and District Housing Association enjoy the group's 50th anniversary party

Thame and District Housing Association has marked its 50th birthday with the opening of a new anniversary garden for its tenants.

The association based in Windmill Road wad founded in 1964 to provide sheltered accommodation for elderly people living in and around the town.

The garden was officially opened earlier this month with founder member Cynthia Haynes and Trevor Cook, who has been a member of the association since it began cutting the ribbon at a garden party.

Guests enjoyed a buffet lunch and cream teas following the garden’s opening.

A host of local dignitaries attended the day.

TDHA’s first development in Thame was in Croft Court in 1966, when eight bedsits were built.

They received further funding from the Housing Corporation to develop Peace Court in Thame in 1976.

The scheme consisted of 13 flats and six bedsits and was first occupied two years later.

The second phase of building at the current Pearce Court site took place in 1982, with a further 32 flats constructed.
