As more than 70 people watched on, the two co-founders of the charity behind the new facility cut the ribbon to officially open Nancy Potter House.

Library services, defibrillator and IT training, a lunch club and a friendship group will be among the services and activities being provided at the Nelson Close building.

Francis Luscombe, co-founder of Estuary League of Friends, which will be running the new hub, said: “At last there is a building where everybody of 
all ages – whether they’re lonely or dealing with other life challenges – can feel loved and find a happy, smiley face.”

Rachel Gilpin, chief executive of Estuary League of Friends added: “It was wonderful to finally open Nancy Potter House as our response to the community’s vision of a range of services under one roof for all to enjoy.”
