Veterans from the armed forces have been recognised and celebrated during by an evening of entertainment hosted by Lowestoft mayor Stephen Ardley.

More than 50 people representing all the armed forces attended the event held on May 14 at Masonic Lodge, Lowestoft.

Attendees enjoyed a finger buffet, live music and games to honour the work of those who have served their country.

'I think it is important to host such events as it is a stepping stone to Armed Forces Day next month (June 25) and other events throughout the year. It was a very successful evening and hopefully it will be first of a yearly event.

'I would like to say a special thank you to Kevin Smith and David Ormsby, who helped with the organising of the evening.'
