Fareham Borough Council, which runs Crofton Court, put on the party for residents with celebrations including a cake and a performance from the HMS Collingwood Voluntary Band.

A collection of photos went on display, dating back to when Crofton Court was built in 1989. The building was formerly called ‘Stubbington House’ and was a Royal Navy training school, which was adopted by Daedalus in 1989.

Audrey Longman, 88, who has lived at Crofton Court for 16 years, said: ‘I enjoy living at Crofton Court and have made lots of good friends here. We all enjoyed celebrating the big birthday.’
