The second anniversary of a village's dementia support group has been marked with a party.
More than 30 people were at the celebrations for the Hethersett group at the village's Methodist church hall.
Music students from Hethersett Old Hall School performed and Zena Aldridge, regional Admiral nurse for Age UK, gave a talk on the progress made on raising awareness of dementia.
David Bills, chairman of the group, said: 'It's difficult to believe that it's two years since we launched the support group in Hethersett.
'We are delighted that the dementia café has proved so successful and shown a need for such an initiative in our community.'
