A Dacorum charity which has provided 60 years of support to people with learning difficulties and their families celebrated with a diamond jubilee party.

Dacorum Mencap invited members old and new to join the mayors of Dacorum and Berkhamsted, Bert Chapman and Ron Cowie, for a cream tea at Shendish Manor. A magician also entertained the guests, and there were old photos on display during the special event.

The charity’s Elaine Precious said: “It was a beautiful day, and it was great to be able to celebrate such a huge milestone.

“With only four part-time, paid staff, most of our work is delivered by a huge band of volunteers, so we always welcome new people.”
