A club for people living with dementia and their carers was officially opened by North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb.
The Lessingham Methodist Forget Me Not Club, near Stalham, provides a facility for the 'lonely elderly' in the area.
Ros Peeble, lay pastor of Lessingham Methodist Church and club organiser, said: 'Major refurbishments, costing over £55,000 to date, were undertaken and the church premises are now multi-functional, warm and welcoming to all.
'We have a fully refurbished kitchen, solar panels on the roof, and the walls are painted in a warm yellow colour.
'Volunteers, members and carers are drawn from the local area and the meetings, on the third Thursday each month, consist of all sorts of fun activities in the morning, lunch, armchair aerobics and a sing-song to close the afternoon. There are a few spaces left in the club.'
