To mark its 25th anniversary service users, family members, staff and even ex-employees shared their memories and partied the night away.
Locality Manager Angela Smith for the service, said
“Reaching 25 years as a service is a huge milestone and we wanted to hold an event that really celebrated the history of Greenford Walk and the people involved. Having people there that have been involved in our work during the past 25 years to share their memories made it all the more enjoyable.”
