About 140 Cambrai residents got into the spirit of the 15th anniversary celebrations with a Birthday �P� Party sundowner on Friday by turning out in their best P-themed costumes.

Cambrai also celebrated the �big 1-5� anniversary with a garden party on Sunday.

Maureen Farrell, who is the secretary of the social and activities committee, said the celebrations fittingly celebrated the vibrant active community at the village.

�We have a wonderful community here; people care about each other and help each other, which is really worth celebrating,� she said.

�I�ve been here 14 years now, and I love it.

�It�s a very active community here, generally speaking of the 430 residents there are a few hundred who are regularly involved in things.

�Others help out in various capacities, from driving Genevieve the buggy around to helping organise events such as the 15th birthday celebrations.�

Village manager Nick Walker said the lively celebrations reflected the vibrancy of the community.

�Cambrai is a fantastic community for retirees, and we�re proud of what we have here,� he said.
