A Hanover (Scotland) sheltered housing complex in Barrhead held a party to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the organisation and a major anniversary in the history of the site.

Tenants and staff gathered to enjoy a special buffet lunch to mark both Hanover (Scotland) Housing Association’s 40th anniversary and also 35 years since St Mary’s Gardens opened to residents, with everyone enjoying cake and an afternoon of dancing.

Over the last 40 years Hanover (Scotland) has been at the forefront of providing innovative care and housing to meet the needs of a spectrum of demographics, supporting residents to experience full and active lives.

The organisation will continue to lead the way in the future, utilising new technology and innovate methods of housing design and care delivery to adapt to a changing world, further improving the lives of residents whilst creating and supporting vibrant local communities.

Louise Muir, sheltered housing manager at St Mary’s Gardens, said: “It was lovely that everyone came together for a double anniversary celebration marking 40 years of Hanover (Scotland) Housing Association and 35 years since St. Mary’s Gardens opened its doors. I love working here and really enjoy helping our residents lead independent and active lives.

“Some of our tenants have been here a long time and all of them, their families and the staff here have been an important part of many people’s lives for a long time. These anniversaries were the perfect excuse for a party and we all had a brilliant time.”
