Lincoln Court 60 year celebration

Lincoln Court 60 year celebration

Residents at Lincoln Court, Scunthorpe held an anniversary celebration on Tuesday 15 August to celebrate 60 years since it opened.

Lincoln Court is one of Ongo’s retirement living schemes and has 68 apartments, communal space, a games room and large garden areas.

A photo booth, games, tombola, party food and cake were on offer at the celebration, along with the official opening of a commemorative bench.

More than 60 people attended, including residents’ families and Ongo colleagues.

Oliver Mortimer, Customer Engagement & Information Officer at Ongo said: “It was a lovely day all round.

“The Lincoln Court Social Committee and fellow residents went above and beyond to make the day the best it could be. Everybody was happy and had a thoroughly enjoyable time.

“It was a perfect way to bring the community together to mark the special occasion, and the bench was a heartfelt tribute which will have a lasting legacy at the scheme.”

Residents at Lincoln Court, along with 17 other groups, benefitted from Ongo’s Community Grant project earlier this year. They were awarded £2,000 to purchase the commemorative bench in tribute to three residents from the

scheme, plus install additional decking.

Carol, organiser of the event and Ongo tenant said: “Today commemorates 60 years of Lincoln Court, celebrates the grant we received and the new memorial bench. I’m a huge advocate for involving people and I’m delighted with how it’s gone.

“Days like this are so important to keep the community going, and especially for old people who can so easily fall into isolation.

“Particularly since Covid it has been a lot more difficult to get people on board, but we’ve been chipping away, keeping the spirit up and we’re starting to see more people attend things we organise.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to all those that have been involved in organising and helping to make the day such a success.”
