ALCESTER residents recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of the opening of Malin Court, a retirement complex in the town.

Residents enjoyed an afternoon tea and raised £100 for Acorn Children’s Hospice.

The event was attended by new mayor of Alcester Gill Forman, Town Crier Rory Duff, and David Malin, whose father the complex was named after.

A spokesman said a good time was enjoyed by all.
