About 100 people turned up to the shindig at Age UK in Church Lane to mark the dedicated decade of operations in the town.

The merriment involved a tombola, vintage clothing and bric a brac sale.

Budding volunteers also got involved making fresh cakes for the bake sale.

Manager Janice Farrelly said: “The event went very well. Everyone got involved throughout the course of the day which was great. People really enjoyed it.
