The centenary party saw some residents getting dressed up in seriously old-fashioned clothes and there was a birthday cake, a scrapbook on dis- play and walk and talk led by organiser Neil Deans. Neil and his wife Lynn Cadenhead had everyone over to their place for a cuppa and a slice of the cake donated by Neighbourhood Support. What was great was some of the stories that came up over cups of tea,'' Neil said. The oldest houses in Elliot St were built as part of New Zealand's first state hous- ing scheme.
