Around 75 attended the afternoon which included a speech by Chief Executive Lesley Standing.

She told everyone present that the charity is currently in a very strong position and said: “It is important to invite representatives from the community here - including many of our neighbours in Meads.

“We are very keen to engage with the community and our 70th anniversary is a great way of doing this.”

Councillor Chris Hardy, the chair of Wealden District Council, thanked the staff and residents for putting on a wonderful spread and making everyone welcome.
