Celebrating 21 years at Applegarth

Monday, November 7, 2005

The residents of Applegarth got together last Friday to celebrate its 21st birthday. Five of them were among the first to move in at the supported housing scheme in Mansfield Road when it was opened by Northern Counties Housing Association.


Guest of honour at the celebration was local MP, Meg Munn, whose uncle Roy Munn had performed the official opening 21 years earlier in his capacity as Lord Mayor. Ms Munn joined residents for afternoon tea, and enjoyed perusing old photographs from the opening with Joan Duggan, one of the original residents.


84-year-old Joan, who has lived in the area since she was a child, occupies one of the 59homes at Applegarth. She said: “I consider myself very lucky to live here. It is pleasant with well kept gardens and perfectly convenient for me to be close to my church and

my friends.”


She continued: “I am very pleased with the way that Northern Counties looks after the properties and from a security point of view I can’t fault it. I feel extremely safe here and that is one less worry to have.”


As a special surprise for residents, Northern Counties tracked down the four

wardens/scheme managers that have worked at Applegarth over the past 21 years.


The first warden, Joan Shemeld, said: “I was there from the beginning in 1984, for 13 years and I can almost remember every tenant’s name at Applegarth during that time. I have some very happy memories of my time there, we had lots of trips and

entertainment. They were lovely people, very grateful, often leaving a fruit cake or a

bunch of flowers outside my front door.”


Meg is pictured with one of the original residents, Joan Duggan, in front of a commemorated plaque which marked Applegarth’s opening by the then Lord Mayor Roy Munn in 1982.
