"My name is Thomas Warren and I am 92 years old. As the oldest resident of the town, I had the honour of turning on the Christmas lights last year which was a very proud moment for me.
I was living in a flat in the centre of the town and one night, a stone was thrown through the window by vandals. After that incident I could not sleep and I got to the stage where I felt I could not stay in the flat any longer.
I am now a resident of Kilminchy and I certainly feel very secure and am able to relax at night. I love the apartment, all my neighbours call to see me and I know that I can call on someone day or night if needed.
It was the best decision I ever made to move to Kilminchy."
