Marking 30 years of care
THIRTY years after the first sod was laid at St Nicholas Court, sheltered housing resident Eileen Overbury is still there.
She has also lived at the Hardwicke facility the longest. The sheltered housing scheme, run by Stroud District Council, is celebrating its 30th anniversary.
Last week residents from the 34 homes enjoyed a spot of afternoon tea and a buffet lunch with each other.
They were joined by councillors, police representatives and relatives.

Michelle Elliott, from Stroud District Council, said: "Eileen tells us that she had been newly widowed and went to have a look at St Nicholas Court and instantly fell in love.
"When she moved in the bricks were in piles in the field and caravans were on site by the river but they all disappeared in time."
