An antiques and vintage collectables centre in Harleston has celebrated the opening of a new similarly themed venture in the town.

On Saturday Cornucopia II was opened in Redenhall Street in the former Duke William pub building.

The new centre is linked to the Cornucopia at the Corn Xchange, which is based in Exchange Street and is owned by David Charles and Glen Philpott.

The owners were present at Saturday's opening of Cornucopia II, which saw police officers providing complementary rides on rickshaws between the two centres.

The ribbon cutting ceremony was carried out by builder and renovator Ivan Philpott.

Mr Charles said: 'We are both so pleased we have been able to breathe new life into another redundant building for the enjoyment of the town.'
