A centre that supports people aged over 50 in the Great Yarmouth area has celebrated its first anniversary and is looking forward to expanding its services

The centre in Regent Street provides information and activities five days a week.

To mark its anniversary two birthday cakes were made by a volunteer and it held a week of fun activities.

New to the centre are free legal surgeries supported by Gordon Dean Solicitors, helping people with information on wills, probate and power of attorney.

The upstairs of the centre is also now complete with training and meeting rooms along with hot desks available to businesses and organisations to rent.
