A new community training kitchen in South Lowestoft is to be opened with a celebration event.

To mark the opening of the community training kitchen and hot desking office at Lowestoft's Kirkley Centre a celebration is to be held on February 9 showcasing the best of the local community.

The new training kitchen is fitted with domestic equipment, so that skills can be easily converted to the home environment and has space for up to 10 people, with five ovens.

The new hot desking facility will allow small businesses and organisations to have a low-cost professional base and business address in Lowestoft.

As well as showcasing these new facilities, there will be stalls from local organisations and charities such as Talent Match, Suffolk Family Carers, Realise Futures, Open Door Carer Support, NHS, Lowestoft Ogogo, Lowestoft Rising, YMCA, Metachick, Community Action Suffolk and Kirkley People's Forum.
