This competitive quartet were crowned darts champions after winning a contest involving sheltered housing tenants.

The annual competition is hosted by Dacorum Borough Council to bring together those living within its supported housing schemes.

Winners - Len Morris, Daphne Gregory, Douglas Kay and Paul Wright - from Gilbert Burnet House and Florence Longman House, both in Hemel Hempstead, were congratulated by Dacorum Mayor Allan Lawson.

Their prize - apart from the much coveted shield - was vouchers from council contractor Osborne which paid for a celebratory tea party for the winners and fellow residents. Mr Lawson also attended the event.

Council supporting housing co-ordinator Joanne Steel said: “It is a joyful event. There are a lot of keen darts players and most of our supported housing schemes have dart boards in their lounges.”
