AS ONE of her last engagements as mayor of Fareham, Councillor Susan Bayford enjoyed a special lunch.

She was invited down to Abbeyfield Court, in Locks Heath, to have lunch with members of the society before her position as mayor ends.

As well as a three-course meal, Cllr Bayford was able to sit and chat to the members.

Neil Thompsom, senior house manager, said: ‘Councillor Susan Bayford has supported us since our opening.

‘As she comes to the end of her mayorship Susan has promised to continue to support us.’

Abbeyfield Court is now looking forward to the Abbeyfield Week Big Lunch which starts on June 1.

Tickets are still available from the house and the Halifax Building Society at Locks Heath shopping centre.
