Serving up a treat as part of the World's Biggest Coffee morning, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, a series of events have been held in Waveney – with others planned tomorrow.

With hot beverages, cup cakes, slices of cake and the chance to buy whole cakes, something for everyone was on offer at events across the district.

At the Lowestoft & East Suffolk Maritime Museum in Whapload Road, as it was free entry more than 60 people attended the coffee morning today – and several had said that they would return to look at the museum again.

Tea, coffee and cakes were also on offer at Jaracs Accountancy in Suffolk Road, at AFS Fabrication in Commercial Road, Co-Operative Funeral Services in Pakefield Street, while a community coffee morning was held at Nationwide Building Society and a raffle, tombola and games took place at Kendons in Tonning Street.
