MANDURAH Garden Estate residents celebrated their 20th anniversary with a high tea morning tea.

The estate was established in 1998 and has grown into a vibrant community for the over 50s.

Dorn Saint, a resident since the estate opened said she felt much safer since she had downsized.

“I can go on cruises and visit my family without worrying about leaving my home while I am gone,’’ she said.

Brendan, a chipper 93, and his wife Pat would not live anywhere else and believe moving to the Gardens has added years to Brendan’s life.

Mandurah MLA David Templeman, attended the opening in 1998 when he was Mandurah deputy mayor.

“The people who live at Mandurah Gardens Estate are wonderful citizens of our City,’’ he said.

“Many of them continue to volunteer in the community and their shared life stories add vibrancy to our city’s diversity and journey.’’
