Lord Petre with Gary Moore, chairman of the Abbeyfield Billericay Society.

A sheltered housing scheme in Billericay held a fete last week to mark its 30th anniversary.

Archer House, Laindon Road, was opened by Princess Anne in 1986.

It houses 10 elderly residents and is managed by the Abbeyfield Billericay Society Limited, a charitable trust.

Lord Petre opened the fete on Saturday, August 6, and presented each of the residents with a commemorative mug.

The fete raised £685, which will be invested in a social fund for the residents to pay for day trips.
