A service for people living with memory issues ensured one of its regular visitors enjoyed an extra-special 100th birthday. 

Reepham Sunshine Memory Cafe was determined to celebrate with Joy Flint as she reached her centenary on February 24. 

Ms Flint cut her specially-made cake while fellow visitors, helpers and entertainers joined in with a rendition of happy birthday. 

And she could not wait to show members her card from the Queen at their next meeting on Thursday, March 10. 

The cafe, a Reepham Rotary Club project, has steadily grown a healthy membership since it was launched last year. 

Meetings offer a welcoming atmosphere with various entertainment and, in recent months, visitors have enjoyed seated pilates, music from a ukulele band.  

They are held from 10 am to 12pm at St Michael’s Hall on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. No membership or regular fees are required.
