The centre, in St Withburga Lane, runs social activities ranging from games and a garden club, to singing, reminiscence and art sessions, also offering chiropody and transport services.

Those attending the Christmas party enjoyed a three-course lunch, music from guitarist and singer Laurie Menear and a raffle with prizes donated by the nearby Co-op store, which also sent two members of staff to help with the lunch.

It was the first in a string of festive events being organised for Meeting Point users, with other upcoming activities including visits from the Gressenhall Singers and local school children, as well as trips to a local café for a seasonal lunch and to the Cromer Pier Christmas Show.
